My life of music — enhanced by KUSC

My dad introduced me to classical music through opera on our car radio in the early 1940s, then through the Bell Telephone Hour in radio once a week. My piano teacher taught me to play classical music on the piano. My high school music teacher taught me what was called “Rudiments of Music”. And, KUSC not only filled me in on everything else — the lives of composers, why pieces were written, the performers, how various pieces of music were introduced and audience reactions, etc. — but it also gave me a place to go for serenity, joy, and a new appreciation for a lifelong love of great music.

Through Alan Chapman, and all the presenters with their vast knowledge, I learned so much. My car radio is set to KUSC, and each time I listen I am reminded of my dad and all my teachers. Thank you all for filling my days with magnificent music!

Loved KUSC for years!

We have loved listening to KUSC for years, from many places. Serving overseas, we depended on the internet to keep us connected and feeling less stressed in difficult places. Now we are retired and living on Whidbey Island in WA state and wouldn’t be without KUSC! I stream the programs on the iPad in my kitchen and the iPad on my office desk. Love so many of the programs and presenters... especially Jennifer Miller, Diane Niccolini, Jim Sjveda.. and the rest of the wonderful crew... and now, an absolute treat to listen to the new Christmas music channel. I love that the music on this channel is more of the best ever written... not department store muzak!
We are supporters of KUSC and will be for years to come. THANK YOU!

Wonderfully selected Classical Music everywhere

I have loved and listened to KUSC since I was a child and as an adult I have had the joy of learning just how good their selection truly is. KUSC is on the radio in Los Angeles but I think it’s one of the best classical stations anywhere. I spend a lot of time traveling and no matter where I am, this is what I listen to. Highly recommended to any lover of classical music or anyone who wants to learn more about classical music. It’s not just oldies too! At night they often play the works of contemporary composers and always are sure to give context for composers you may not know especially well.
