Ever wonder what an early morning radio announcer looks like? Here's a sneak peek of what my schedule looks like:

6:00 a.m.      Wake up and eat a quick breakfast, catch up on the news. Zoom! Out the door!
6:28 a.m.      Stop to get one large black coffee.
6:44 a.m.      Pull into empty WHRO parking lot.
6:52 a.m.      Start to assemble the first few hours of the morning show. A Haydn symphony not played in a while, a Beethoven piano work to contrast…Perhaps a composer I have not heard before.
7:00 a.m.      ON AIR!!!

WHRO’s legendary Raymond Jones once told me that planning a show was like creating a new composition: contrasting composers from different periods, juxtaposing works of different genres, and pacing pieces of varying lengths—piecing together five hours that balance just like any of the sonatas or symphonies I play. This challenge is fresh every week and is unencumbered by the burden of overbearing programmers. I get to program my own show! That’s because WHRO and our members trust me. With that freedom, I look forward to exploring both the new and the familiar every weekend.

I hope you’ll join me weekend mornings for Car Tunes and Musical Brunch on WHRO 90.3 FM. And thanks for trusting in me with your radio station!
