Erik Satie

This week we take a look at some music with roots in Yemen, Morocco, Sudan,  and Sephardic Spain -- some ancient, some contemporary.

Then we devote the second half of the program to the world premiere recording of a major piano work by Erik Satie, written in 1892, played at its debut in that year, and possibly unperformed again for nearly a hundred years..

It all promises to make for a most unusual evening up in the Attic.
 

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
