Lifetime of beautiful music.

Beginning with KFAC (AM) on our old Montgomery Ward “Airline” radio, and continuing with my iPhone X and “Bluetooth Bose” head phones set to KUSC, I have spent most of eighty-two years enjoying excellent classical music, including the Saturday Met Opera. There were extended periods of time when I couldn’t receive the signal, including my Submarine Service. But now with stage 4 cancer, scoliosis, severe arthritis, a large abdominal aortic aneurysm, and a string of heart attacks (after quintuple bypass),... you could say “physically, I’m a mess”. However, God has richly blessed us.

My main activities include studying my Bible, praying for a long list of folks including my wife, children (4 families), grandkids (20, plus spouses), and great grandkids (4) ... watercolor painting ... and extremely important, listening to KUSC for my need of “intelligent” music.

Your labeling of the music and commentary on the composers is a great thing ,,, keep it up!

One request on your website ... Please add many more pictures and change the “mix”, often. Some of us native Californians (I’m fourth generation) could use the boost.

Thank you, much.

Keeps me grounded

First thing I do when I get to the office is click into KUSC - low in the background; it evens out the stressful moments of the day. When I get home at night, if I am cooking, I turn it on while I pour my glass of wine. Somehow I concentrate better. I love listening to the different programs — and learn something new about classical music every day. I especially enjoy Sunday evening — From the Top, which celebrates the amazing talents of young people, and then the 7 p.m. concert. Its so fun to sometimes hear again a symphony I’ve heard a few weeks prior at the Hollywood Bowl or Disney Concert Hall. KUSC has enriched my quality of life in so many ways!

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.
