24 Hour Radio Race: Heart Moms & Tummy Moms

Members of WTJU’s public affairs team Soundboard got together from August 2-3 to participate in a 24 hour radio extravaganza.  With over 170 other stations worldwide, they battled the clock to create a 4 minute non-fiction audio piece on the theme of “You should know.”  This is the result:

Story Introduction and Audio

As a kid, when your parents say, “there’s something you should know”, you flinch and prepare yourself for a talk about the birds and the bees. But the last thing you’d expect to hear is that your parents aren’t the ones who gave birth to you.

    This is a release I’d like to keep on hand for all those curmudgeons who complain that contemporary classical music is ugly and unlistenable. Peter Lieuwen’s compositions are anything but. There’s a certain exuberance in his music that I find appealing. My impression is that Lieuwen isn’t concerned with discovering new sounds never heard before […]

    Johann Michael Haydn was the younger brother of the much more successful and famous Franz Joseph Haydn. It’s not surprising that Michael’s work is seldom performed. Who could compete with the father of the symphony and the string quartet? But during their lifetimes, that fame didn’t matter. Michael Haydn was able to have a successful career, […]

  • Discovering the Classical String Trio

    As the Vivaldi Project points out in the liner notes for this release, string trios from the classical era are woefully under-represented in the performing and recording repertoire. It’s not because instrumental grouping’s unusual — there were hundreds of string trios written between 1750 and 1827 (the approximate dates of the classical era). And, as […]
