Seriously when was the last time you heard a complete piece by Feldman, Mahler, Pettersson etc......


Pettersson and Feldman get little to no airplay, but everytime the local station plays Mahler, the whole work is played.  Same with Bruckner.  (Unless it's listener request night, in which case only one movement might get played.)

I love 20th Century music, but as some of it is now over a century old, it's time to refine the usage of "contemporary."

You're right, Todd. And I've just checked the FAQ at http://contemporary-classical.com and they agree with you too...

Is music from the first half of the 20th century really "contemporary"?

Well, no, not really. But we find that playing music from 1900 on, along with more truly "modern" music, makes for a particularly good listening experience. It also lets us play many underappreciated composers from the first half of the 20th century.

Another vote for contemporary-classical here. I listen to it all the time now while I'm on the internet. The best part is being able to request a work, and they play it an hour later.

In the Charlotte, NC area the station is WDAV located on the campus of Davidson College.  I like to take students up there twice a year to answer phones for their pledge drive, the kids get a real kick out of it.

You can listen to WDAV online for free at:

http://www.wdav.org


Horn Teacher - being up the road in W-S, we can 'pull in' the Davidson station - excellent & abundant classical music programming - need to start listening to it some more!  Locally, we have the Wake Forest Univeristy channel, WFDD (88.5) - the classical programming has dropped substantially, now mainly a 'talk' station in the AM & afternoon - music more at night (just listened to the Fred Childs program the other day); we are annual 'day sponsors' but have not been pleased w/ the excess of these 'talk shows' although many are certainly quite good.  :D

Excellent.  I wasn't aware the signal made it that far.  The staff there is a lot of fun to hang around with during the pledge drives.  They let my students tour the station as well.

Well, it does vary from 'day to day' - I do have a 'cheap' roof FM antenna, but should probably invest in a better one.  :-\ :D

On his blog, Alex Ross posted a link to RadiOm, which looks really great for 20th-century fans.  It's sponsored by Other Minds (in San Francisco) and here are some sample programs below.  You have to register, but it's free and quick. 

Sample programs:

Ode To Gravity: Brian Eno (Special Edition, I of IV) Uploaded: 11/20/2003.  Charles Amirkhanian and Brian Eno discuss Phonetic Poetry, how Brian writes his lyrics, and the spirit of inquisitiveness at KPFA Radio, on Saturday February 2, 1980.  Listen to some of Brian Eno's pieces, "After the Heat",...

John Cage and David Tudor in Concert in San Francisco, Jan. 16, 1965 Uploaded: 12/11/2003.  Recorded by KPFA Radio on the 39th birthday of David Tudor, this historic concert with John Cage thundered through the halls of the sculpture court of the San Francisco Museum of Art before a capacity audience that included the late Darius...

Stravinsky in Rehearsal from 1947 Uploaded: 01/22/2004.  In 1947, William Malloch possessed of a sense of history, recorded Igor Stravinsky rehearsing his new revision of his symphonies of wind instruments in memory of Debussy.  The sound is antique but the picture of what Stravinsky is striving...

A quick search didn't reveal any mention of this stream.

I just discovered that RCO offers over 10 hours (as of this date) of* concert music as a web stream, available as 128 and 256 kbps streams.

Terrific. :)

I've added the main radio station listings page to my blog's 'Resources' page. ;)

Great site, thanks!  Awhile ago I noticed the line-up included music by Eve Beglarian, Leo Ornstein and Hans Abrahamsen.  If that's representative I may be logging on to this site often.

Whilst surfing the web, I came across a classical music radio toolbar that links to around 70 different classical music stations.

The majority of the stations are American and I have never heard of them before.  ;D

Here in England, we only really have BBC Radio 3 (which is excellent) and Classic FM (shudder  :-X).

I've never really listened to radio on the Internet before and I'm fascinated by the amount of classical stations out there.

So, my question is, which stations are worth checking out? And which classical stations do you enjoy listening to generally?

Navneeth (opus 106) and I both "grew up", at least in terms of our beginning interest in Classical Music, to 'Beethoven Radio' in Hartford, CT.  It was also the first time I participated in any kind of online forum, in which I was able to discuss my new found love of classical music and received many recommendations.  A very memorable time.  :)
