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
