Mozart's Attic Sunday June 13th at 6:00 p.m.

Bela Bartok
Bela Bartok

Early in the 20th century, Bela Bartok headed for the villages around Hungary, lugging along an Edison wax cylinder recorder, to capture the folk melodies of the countryside before they were gone forever.

We’ll hear some of those field recordings this Sunday, and then we’ll see what Bartok did with them once he got back home.

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.)
