In tribute to David Bowie, host Robert Hammond aired Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, narrated by Bowie. Conducted by Eugene Ormandy and performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra, this classical composition was originally released in 1978. Hammond aired the 1992 remastered version in its entirety on Stage Notes the week of January 10, 2016. The entire program now available on demand below.
It seems Like Stage Notes began airing on WXXI FM 91.5 yesterday – October 24th marked its sixth anniversary. Although it airs elsewhere throughout the country, WXXI was the first station that gave it the green light.
Thank you for listening and supporting the program. Below is a link to the full anniversary program that aired. It featured many special guests, including Norm Silverstein, Sue Rogers, Elissa Orlando, Ruth Phinney, and Julia Figueras. NPR’s Ari Shapiro was kind enough to join the celebration. Thank you, Ari!
