At Your Request

Wednesday, 12 noon to 3 pm

This is your opportunity to request the classical pieces you want to hear. Join the fun! Fill out the form below, and then we'll do our best to get your selection on the air! Playlists for each show are listed at the very bottom of this post, on Thursday of each week. This is how it works: From the 50 to 60 requests received each week, we select 10 to 15 pieces that balance each other when played during the three-hour program.

A native of Bohemia, Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904) was a minority in the Austrian Empire and in the classical music world. But he had risen to the top of it all when a millionaire patroness hired him to direct the brand-new National Conservatory of Music of America in New York City. It would train all students without regard to race or ability to pay. There, in 1893, Dvořák’s eyes were opened to the possibilities of an "American" music.
