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.
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.
