This week we're celebrating the music of Franz Schubert, born 227 years ago on Wednesday, the archetypal starving artist, largely ignored during a short, illness-plagued life.

Despite it all, his music reflects an irrepressible spirit throughout. it's his gift to us, and we'll share it this Sunday.

Sunday at 6:00 p.m. on WFIT 89.5 FM, streaming at WFIT.org, or ask your smart speaker to play WFIT.

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.)
