Can We End The Fiscal Year Successfully?

Support the music you love!

With contributions from listeners like you - before June 30th - we'll raise the money needed to end the year successfully. What's success, you ask?  It's the ability to pay for all the things you'd expect: electricity, maintenance, equipment, salaries, supplies, and the like. BUT, it's also having the money to create new and exciting programming, like our new radio series featuring live, recorded performances of The Philadelphia Orchestra, our Diamond Sessions broadcasts, and our new Knight Foundation-funded "Music Makers" series.

Chopin's 'Mad Men' Cameo

Dr. Arnold Rosen (Brian Markinson) and Sylvia Rosen (Linda Cardellini) celebrate New Year's Eve with Megan Draper (Jessica Pare) and Don Draper (Jon Hamm) as the sixth season of Mad Men opens.
Michael Yarish/AMC

Originally published on Mon April 8, 2013 6:02 pm

Mad Men's music is as important as its plot and costumes. While attention has been lavished on its pop songs, the show's occasional use of classical music has gone largely unrecognized.
