Just got word that Marvin Rosen, the intrepid announcer over at WPRB in Princeton, will be airing the complete Vespers this Wednesday morning, July 22. (I say “intrepid” because Marvin knows—and plays—more under-the-radar repertoire than anyone I know.) I’m told that it will begin at about 9:50 am. WPRB is 103.3 FM in Princeton, N.J., and anyone can also listen on line here. I believe this is the premiere broadcast of Vespers in its entirety.
