WBACH's The Joy of Christmas


Again this year, WBACH is presenting its musical Christmas gift to our listeners, "The Joy of Christmas."  39 hours of continuous Christmas music, with only minor interruption.  The broadcast runs all the way through to the end of Christmas Day.  Whatever you have planned for the holiday, small gathering, packed house, or quiet time alone, leave on the radio and enjoy all of the wonderful music that we're sending your way.  Merry Christmas from all of us at WBACH!

 

[note for our online listeners.....the World Classical Network, whose programming we carry via the Listen Live link....will begin its continuous Christmas music at 6pm 12/24, continuing all the way through Christmas Day]

12/16: Beethoven's (Estimated) Birthday


December 16 is the day on which Beethoven's birthday is traditionally observed.  But there's a catch:  nobody knows exactly WHEN Beethoven was born!  The only surviving record (piece of paper....not the vinyl platter than spins on a turntable) is of his baptism, and that was on December 17, 1770.  Apparently, in those days, baptisms tended to occur the day after a child's birth, so that's how the December 16th "birthday" came to decided upon.  A few interesting Beethoven links to try:

 

Wikipedia's Beethoven entry.

 

The Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, Germany (his birthplace).

 

The American Beethoven Society.

 

And for the children.....the Classics For Kids page about Beethoven.
