Classical KUSC

Duff Murphy


On Saturday mornings 9:00 - 12:00 noon, busy Los Angeles attorney Duff Murphy trades depositions for divas and other things operatic as host of Classical KUSC's popular "Opera Show." The erudite and enthusiastic world class opera fan has been presenting opera on Los Angeles radio for many years, having joined Classical KUSC in 1994. During the Metropolitan Opera's December to April season, he introduces opera's historic performances and colorful personages; and during the Met's off-season he features favorites among composers, conductors and artists. Recognizing that operatic music spans generations, continents and centuries, Murphy imbues each program with a range of musical historical experience, often creating programs around specific themes.
