Our New Classical Schedule

We’re delighted to announce WTJU’s new schedule for classical music.  Most of your favorite shows remain unchanged, but we have a few new goodies for you.

Novitas has replaced The Listening Room as our Wednesday evening show devoted to 20th and 21st Century music.  John Delehanty, who has a great deal of knowledge about modern music, will be bringing his expertise as he moves from Monday mornings to be the new host of Novitas.

Dawn’s Early Light will end on November 24, and after the Classical Marathon (December 1-7), will be replaced by a new Monday morning show, Top Of The Morning, hosted by Andrew Morgan, which will begin on December 8.

On Friday evenings, Melodiya has ended and is being replaced with Fridays At Six, which is really two shows in one.  Starting on November 7, on alternate Fridays, Thom Pease brings his vast knowledge of the musical theater to present On With The Show, a program featuring music from Broadway musicals, operetta and anything else Thom finds to entertain us.  And on the other alternate Fridays, Julie Fowler presents Shaken, Not Stirred, a delightful mixture of joyful classics and film music to help you relax at the end of the week.  Francesca will be joining Deborah Murray to host Classical Sunrise on Sunday mornings.

Our Weekday Morning Hosts:

L-R: Andrew Morgan (Mondays), Allen Hench (Tuesdays), Ralph Graves (Wednesdays),Campbell Shiflett (Thursdays) and Steve Myers (Fridays)
