Mozart's Attic Thursday Sept 7th at 10:00 PM

Founded in 1964, Nonesuch Records was a budget label specializing in a then-unusual repertoire of chamber music, particularly that of the Baroque period.
 
This turned  out to be excellent positioning for the Baroque and Renaissance Music Revival of a half century ago. Nonesuch released albums by the score, introducing the record-buying public to sounds -- and composers -- that many had never heard, or heard of, before.
 
This week, we'll listen to tracks from a dozen or so of these old Nonesuch albums. If you're of a certain age, maybe you have one or two of these records up in your own 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.)
