The Record Shelf
with Jim Svejda
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.
