Hiya, Cheyenne, partiers.
Classical, it's a gas.
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:02pm Cheyenne:

Hi partiers!! Big thanks to James F, Jason S & Katy M for supporting the show -- WFMU hit its GOAL today and I couldn't be happier!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:05pm listener james from westwood:

Yes! It elicited an immense sigh of relief. Proud to have gotten on the Swag for Life train and to have contributed to FMA last month!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:07pm David D:

This is great, Cheyenne - I will have to scour the FMA for classical music now as well.
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:07pm Cheyenne:

Yes! Thanks for the support, James! Did you hear Matt W & Clay this morning singing their way to the goal? Worth a listen if you missed it! :)
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:08pm Cheyenne:

@David D - thank you for tuning in! You can find LOTS of classical music on FMA: freemusicarchive.org...
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:10pm Cheyenne:

My favorite curator is the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum, and they have zillions of tracks on their website, beyond the 100+ tracks you'll find on FMA. www.gardnermuseum.org...

Hi Cheyenne. With so much classical music to choose from, it's an immense help that you pick out the choicest listens.
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:19pm Cheyenne:

@Stanley - honestly, there's too much music to listen to and choose from the entire collection. I choose the best out of what I do listen to when putting together my programs. The wonderful/tragic thing about doing an hour-long show is that there is always so much more than what I can bring to your ears each week!
Avatar Tue. 11/7/17 3:27pm Monica:

so perfect for this gray rainy day in nyc. a welcome change of pace. thx, cheyenne.
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:29pm Cheyenne:

Thanks for tuning in, @Monica! I'm happy to oblige!

Hi folks.

It's great to hear classical stuff on FMA LP...
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:32pm Cheyenne:

Hello there, @melinda! Thanks for joining the party today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:33pm northguineahills:

Haven't heard 'classical' classical outside of Bethany and the occasional Kurt venture. Thanks Cheyenne. Looks like Listening Out There beat me to the punch.
  Tue. 11/7/17 3:33pm melinda:

Clay and Matt singing this morning was great. An exciting moment.
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:33pm Cheyenne:

Thanks for tuning in, @Listening Out There - I appreciate your comments & support.
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:34pm Cheyenne:

@northguineahills - it's an oft-overlooked genre around this here patch of radio-land. Doesn't mean it doesn't deserve some airtime!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/7/17 3:37pm Stanley:

@Cheyenne, I will definitely dip into the FMA classical section. Does it differentiate between 'classical' and modern 'classical' (1.e. 20/21 century)? I love modern compositions
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:39pm Cheyenne:

Yes, there are subgenres aplenty in the classical section, though often at the uploader's discretion - either Curator or Artist.
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:49pm Sem Chumbo:

For a lot of years, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation dedicated one of it's national services, Radio Two, to classical music in all of it's forms.
That stuff kinda grew on me, wonderful to have these resource close to hand:-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:51pm northguineahills:

Yeah, this is much better then NPR's classical selection. Both the engineering, production, recording, and execution.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:51pm northguineahills:

moar fluuuuute! (errr... alto recorder)
  Tue. 11/7/17 3:52pm frenchee:

this is a welcome change and very soothing and sprightly! Thanks for the classics, Cheyenne!
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:52pm Cheyenne:

@Sem Chumbo - it's very easy to listen to and let wash over you, one of the reasons why I think it has lasted as a popular style for so long! I tried to bring mostly recordings of real instruments to this show but many of the artists on FMA also use synths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:53pm northguineahills:

Odd that Saint-Saens was mostly ignored in his native France but celebrated in Great Britain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:53pm northguineahills:

oh, and I don't get back here, thanks again Cheyenne!
Avatar    Tue. 11/7/17 3:53pm Cheyenne:

@northguineahills & @frenchee - thanks so much for spending the last lovely hour with me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:54pm northguineahills:

and if I don't get back here....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/7/17 3:59pm listener james from westwood:

Lovely stuff! Thanks muchly for the kind and intricate sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/7/17 4:00pm Stanley:

Great stuff, thanks!
