When we drove to my parents' house in New Jersey for the Thanksgiving holiday, we hit many dead spots for radio stations with classical music. Finally we arrived in the Philadelphia area and got the frequency for a public radio station that was at that moment playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto.
It's sad to say, but finding classical music stations gets harder and harder. We mourned last year's demise of classical music on WETA, a public radio station that decided to move to an all talk format.
What is a classical music lover to do?
Go to the Internet!
This Sunday (Dec. 11), after about ten minutes of news (in French!), at 11:00 AM EST, Andy Hardy (the son of our luthier), will play a concert that will be broadcast live on the Brussels radio station Musique 3, RTBF. Want to hear a wonderful violinist and practice your French too? Just follow the directions below:
