DEBUSSY'S BIRTHDAY


August 22 was the birthday, in 1862, of French composer Claude Debussy.  He's considered one of the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  To learn more about him and his music check out some of these interesting sites:

 

The Wikipedia article about Debussy is HERE

 

HERE is a link to an organization devoted to the study of the composer's music, the Centre de Documentation Claude Debussy.

 

For our younger listeners, HERE is Debussy's biography on the Classics For Kids site.

 

The Debussy portion of the Piano Society's site is found HERE.

CLASSIC JAZZ RETURNS!!


Some great news!  Arnold Olean's doctor has given the OK for a return to work.  So there WILL BE a "Classic Jazz" broadcast this Saturday, August 9, from the usual 6 to 10pm.   Arnold has been sidelined for several weeks due to double surgeries last month.  THANK YOU to all of you listeners who took the time to email and/or send cards to Arnold during his recovery.  He appreciated hearing from so many of you.
