Classical KUSC

Jim Svejda


 

Although Jim Svejda is one of the most respected, critical voices in the classical music field, he also is one of the most entertaining and popular program hosts on public radio. Since 1979, he has delighted Classical KUSC listeners with his witty, meticulously crafted essays on diverse composers, conductors and artists -- as well as his commentary on a wide range of other subjects that attract his musical fancy.

He is the host and producer of the syndicated radio series The Record Shelf, which is carried by public radio stations across the nation. Locally, it's broadcast Sunday evenings, from 7-8 PM (repeating Saturday evenings from 9-10PM.)

His weeknight evening program may be heard on Classical KUSC from 7 PM to midnight, always commencing with his signature opening, the third movement of Martinu's Piano Quartet #1.
