The Carnival of the Animals

The Carnival of the Animals is usually presented these days as an entertainment for children, complete with narration, the same idea as Peter and the Wolf.

But Camille Saint-Saens didn’t write it for children. He wrote it to amuse his friends with parody, sarcasm, and just plain farce.

We’ll hear the Carnival of the animals this Sunday — without narration.

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.)
