Classical KUSC



The Record Shelf

with Jim Svejda

(Sundays, 10pm)

Let host Jim Svejda guide you through the best classical recordings on "The Record Shelf." Each week he reviews classical recordings with a passion and insight only he can provide. You’ll gain a deeper appreciation of classical music as you absorb his irreverent, selective and highly opinionated views of classical CDs.

    Jim: I would like to thank you for the two shows featuring Christian Ferras.
    He was a marvelous violinist, but I was unaware of him until your shows.
    I have since purchased two of his CD's. What a beautiful tone. Thanks
    again. Steve Gabel
