Mozart in the Sky with Diamonds

That's a big box of American music up in the Attic, and we'll look through it this Fourth of July starting with music from the revolutionary colonies  to the 20th century as we listen to composers William Billings, Samuel Barber, Richard Rogers, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, George Gershwin, Ned Rorem, and more.

Maybe we'll find some surprises; after all, you never know what you might come across 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.)
