Composers with Day Jobs, on Dawn's Early Light

Composers with Day Jobs
A Special Edition of Dawn's Early Light
Monday, September 7, 2009, 6-9am

Composers as laborers hardly fits our notion of the rarefied air of classical composition. But often, music was a second occupation to be indulged in only after earning one's daily bread. Indeed, a few well known composers were highly successful in their chosen non-musical endeavors. Tune to WTJU on Labor Day, September 7, for Dawn's Early Light from 6:00 am to 9:00 am to hear the music of organic chemists, bank clerks, naval officers, and insurance executives in a special Labor Day program: Composers with Day Jobs
