Presentation by Robert McBride, radio broadcaster for 89.9 FM. Classical music is art, science, history, culture, and community. It provides solace and stimulation, entertainment and insight. Thanks to radio and the internet, this art form, ancient and evolving, is available to more people than ever before. Its beauty and power can cross barriers of language and nationality with ease. And it includes the greatest hits of the last thousand years. After more than thirty years spent sharing classical music with untold thousands of listeners around the world, I've had many opportunities to reflect on how my work has helped people. I will share some stories, and some of the music that inspired them.
