Classical Notes

Savage and Shostakovich?

Posted at 2:06 PM on February 9, 2009 by Ward Jacobson (1 Comments)

It seems like an unusual combination, but beginning this Sunday, an AM radio station in Los Angeles will try a mix of classical music with conservative talk shows like Michael Savage, Laura Ingraham and Glenn Beck. The Los Angeles Times wrote about it this week. Okay, the classical music only gets a few hours each week. Still though, an interesting combination. Wonder if it will work?

On an AM station, I wonder whether the bar for "working" is all that high.
