Mozart's Attic: The "Cantata that Ate the BBC"

William Walton

Back in the early days of radio, the fledgling BBC commissioned a modest concert piece from the 28-year-old William Walton. Belshazzar's Feast started small, but grew way beyond the resources of the new broadcasting service.

We'll hear the "Cantata that Ate the BBC" as our featured work on Mozart's Attic this week. It all begins Sunday at 6:00 p.m, right here on 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.)
