As a composer for the musical comedy stage as we’ll as for the concert hall, George Gershwin was a towering figure in American music of the nineteen-twenties and thirties.

This Sunday we’ll devote the entire three hours of Mozart’s Attic to "The Concert Gershwin," in a program including lots of archival material — much of it featuring George Gershwin himself.

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.)
