Hector Berlioz

Hector Berlioz subtitled his Symphonie Fantastique "An Episode in the Life of an Artist."

What sort of an artist is it who has drug-induced nightmares of Jealousies, murder, and his own hanging and funeral culminating in a hellish celebration of death? Was this entirely a figment of Berlioz's imagination, or was there some basis for it all -- and if that was the case, Who was this artist?

We'll look into that this Thursday night.

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.)
