Once-upon-a-time aspiring pianist
As a toddler my first beloved album of my own was the Richard Rogers score of Victory at sea. Later supplanted by Grofe Grand Canyon. My interest spread widely later through baroque, classical and romantic eras., even heavy metal rock. As a result of a contentious divorce of my patents when I was still pre-teen the asset division separated me from the piano and prolonged stress probably contributed to abandoning the dream even though passionate consumption remained. A substantial talent in STEM fields ultimate lead me to satisfying career teaching medical physiology and research. I married late, but I made sure that my daughters, now 25 and 19 had opportunity to learn music or any other calling. They both chose piano at a rewarding recreational level, are loving and mentally razor sharp, and ALSO are developing careers in biomedical sciences/ medical science. They are my life’s major achievement. I stumbled upon KDFC some years ago and its sounds filled via internet my office for years, and now my home. Filled with beloved favorites, previously unknown works by favorite composers, and some works that challenge me to accept other genres. Whenever my conversation turns to how to find good music, KDFC LEADS the parade, along with a few similar institutions around the world. It is vanishingly rare to assemble a group of people who so well preserve and nourish new growth in musical arts. Brava and Bravo a thousnd times.
Musical biographies enrich listening
Fortunate to have grown up with my concert pianist mother immersed in Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart, Schuman & other classical composers of piano sonatas, no reference was made to the life stories. Playing the violin then viola from grammar school through college & grad school, biographic details of composers was omitted as well. How much more expressive would our chamber & full orchestras have been with the humanistic insights KDFC regularly includes I can only imagine. Young & old music listeners & players are lucky to have KDFC providing rich details of the lives & political backdrops these gifted composers. Expanding the diversity of composers , soloists and orchestras is another positive evolution of KDFC.
Thanks for enhancing my daily enjoyment of music since the 1960’s!

My favorite radio station.
I was fortunate enough to have attended a school where classical music appreciation was very important. We were taken by bus to go to the symphony 5 times a year. They were special youth concerts, where the conductor would first tell the kids what the music was all about, which instruments would be involved and why, then have the orchestra play. One concert might have 3-4 of such introductions.
At home almost everyone played an instrument. Every family get together was filled with music and singing.
Classical music has been my go to my whole life, for joy as well as for soothing my soul in difficult times. KDFC has been my go to for many years now. Such great programming. Thank you.
