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!

Just tell us: the name of the classical work, the name of the composer, your name and the city you live in, if you're a WRTI Member, and any comments you may have about why you're requesting this particular piece.

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. The three hours sound very similar to regular classical music programming - the exception being that the host mentions the name of the person requesting the music.
