Have you ever wondered why our newscasts from NPR begin at one minute past the hour, instead of straight up like most other things on radio and TV? It's because the newscasts are designed to be embedded into whatever else NPR (or local stations) may have on the air. A show begins with a one-minute segment teasing what's coming up later, and then there's a break for news. It's all part of a very complicated clock system that is not broken down into 60 (or even 12) neat divisions. You'll find the details here.Read More | Older Posts
Twice each week, Classical 90.5 broadcasts its Community Concerts series, which presents classical music performances recorded live at venues throughout southern Arizona. Ted Prichard hosts.
Community Concerts broadcasts are made possible in part with the support of a National Endowment for the Arts challenge grant funded locally by a contribution from the Holsclaw Foundation.
Matinee broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera continue on Classical 90.5 at 10:00 a.m. this Saturday, April 19th, with a performance of Arabella by Richard Strauss, set to a German libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, in the last of their six collaborations. The broadcast will run approximately three hours and fifty-five minutes.
Swedish soprano Malin Byström stars in the title role of Strauss's nostalgic romance, which explores the fleeting charms of youth, opposite Michael Volle and Genia Kuhmeier. Phillippe Auguin conducts the touching and beautiful score.
