Show infoBACH IN BLACK explores the sometimes friendly, sometimes antagonistic relationship between music that is labeled “classical” and other genres. Playlists feature an eclectic mix of pieces that might not usually be considered complimentary, but are linked by shared historical, artistic, emotional, or thematic content. There are lots of links to explore: many modernist composers were fascinated with jazz, electronic music revolutionized both classical and pop music, and moods like elation or rage can be expressed in many musical forms. I want to break out of the aural wallpaper-style classical music radio programming, without needlessly ignoring true gems of the canon. I want my listeners to be excited by what they hear, and, by pointing out connections between classical and pop styles, I hope listeners become interested in kinds of music that had previously disregarded. I also enjoy including exciting tracks off of CDs on the classical new shelf in my playlists. BACH IN BLACK provides additional classical programming for WOBC, a genre that has been often underrepresented on the station. The music played on the show will be accessible to not just college students, but also non-college community members who enjoy thoughtfully and adventurously programmed classical music.
