This Valentines’ Day romance is in and on the air.  Today we're featuring works inspired by Shakespeare's ill-fated lovers, Romeo and Juliet.  We're also sharing musical depictions of other great love stories; from Orpheus and Euridice to Tristan and Isolde...stories that inspired composers to write some of their greatest romantic works. And when the sun sets keep listening for some jazz standards guaranteed to set the mood for romance.
