Brian Bell | BSO on Record

   

"The best part of my job is sharing the art, craft, and history of music."

Background:  I've been in radio since high school, when it was a diversion from playing horn in orchestras. I managed to keep both unemployable careers going for some 20 years, plowing through three states. I've been in Boston since 1985.

Nickname: Brian

Greatest places to see live music: To see an orchestra, Symphony Hall in Boston

Favorite book about music/musician: The Fabulous Phonograph, by Roland Gelatt (It's been out of print for years, but if you find a copy, you'll love it!)

When not listening to classical music, I listen to the Red Sox

Finest moment on the air: First interview with Sir Colin Davis

Most embarrassing moment on the air: I think I finally blocked it out

If I weren’t a radio host, I’d be writing or teaching or performing music.

The best part of my job is sharing the art, craft, and history of music.
