Flashback to Childhood
I too grew up listening to KDFC on the radio, at home & in the car. I always appreciated that they play complete pieces all the way through (all movements), without talking over any of it, but including as “bookends” informative historical tidbits about the composer, the piece, and/or the performers. Also always clearly identified the performing group, conductor, composer, & year of composition, which greatly increased my knowledge about “classical” music.
It’s nice in this age of AI and autoplay, when music format stations of any genre are rare & super-automated, to listen (even on the internet!) to a station that still respects the input of “DJs” and the relationship of listeners to human music curators, even if they’re no longer sitting in a studio putting the records on turntables (I think). I wish I could afford to donate, but I’m on a fixed income & have a lot of survival expenses to cover just now, so I’m grateful to those who do donate & make this possible. So I’m giving them this 5-star review instead.
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 life would be incomplete without KDFC
I grew up in a small town in Chile. There was a radio station that played classical music parts of the day, my mother would always have it on. When we came to this country in the mid 50s there was a station before Kkhi that also played classical and operatic music part of the day then . . . horror, they went away. But then we were saved by Kkhi and then . . . horror again! They would be going away too! But the gods of music saved us again and gave us KDFC! I’m considering leaving this country because it has become so upsidedown but thanks to modern technology I will be able to take KDFC with me.
I see other comments where people would like to hear more operatic music, so would I.
I have commented on this before, but it hasn’t happened. The human voice is one of the most beautiful instruments when used well.
I have been a supporter for some time and will continue to do so as long as I’m able.
Keep up the good work!
