After nearly three years off the air, Letter V Classical Radio is returning to WDCE at the University of Richmond. The show will run from 1 to 3 p.m. EST (1800-2000 UTC/GMT) on Mondays, beginning Jan. 9.
WDCE broadcasts at 90.1 FM and streams via its website, http://wdce.org, and various radio-streaming services.
Along with music, the show will feature highlights of the week ahead from Letter V’s calendar of classical events. Also, listen for interviews with artists performing in the Richmond area.
Each week’s program will be posted here on Saturday mornings, two days in advance of the show.
Reviving Letter V Classical Radio is not just a return to life as I knew it pre-pandemic, but also a homecoming. My media career began in 1967 at WDCE’s predecessor, WCRC, and many of my closest and longest-lasting friendships were forged at the station. All too many of those old friends have died in recent years, so there’s a bittersweet quality in returning to the air we shared.
Life goes on, though, and sharing favorite pieces and performances, as well as musical discoveries, will be sweet without the bitter. I hope you can join me.
