January at WRTI

antique-radio1The January WRTI e-newsletter includes a potpourri of activities I’ve had a hand in: a synopsis of the latest Fleisher Discoveries show, of course, but also our first-ever podcast. And there’s a report on an activity I had maybe just a fingernail in: last month WRTI won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Radio Broadcast Award for outstanding classical music and jazz programming. An audio montage of all the wonderful gems on WRTI includes the exceedingly fine tones of my friend and most excellent co-host, Jack Moore, voicing the intro to Discoveries.

Then a note about the mention of Vespers in David Patrick Stearns’ Top Ten list for 2008, sandwiched between the YouTube video produced on the recording sessions and an update on the release of the Vespers CD. That’s just around the corner, by the way (many of you have asked, and thanks). We’ve been going over artwork and booklet proofs, and it looks fantastic. We’re hoping to see the recording hit the shelves in February or very soon after. It will also be available for download from those virtual, electronic shelves. A non-virtual, i.e., literal, CD-signing party is in the works, more details as I get them…
