Flash Back: 1979
During the spring, a group of volunteers started producing a weekly program called "Myth America".  Ed Steivender and Eric Bloom, among others, made up this group. This program featured original dramatic, satirical and comedy works, and featured some excellent production techniques.  One of their most memorable productions was a song entitled "Nothing Ever Happens in Hartford" which we started airing immediately after the collapse of the Hartford Civic Center roof.  This satirical song quickly became a favorite among our listeners, and for a while was the most requested song on the station.
     The Saturday programming line-up as of April, 1979 included Focus on Jazz from 11 am to 4 pm, Myth America from 4 pm to 4:30 pm, African Worlds from 4:30 pm to 5 pm, Portuguese programming from 5 pm to 6 pm, West Indian Rhythms from 6 pm to 8 pm and Sounds of the City from 8 pm to12 midnight.
     Geetanjali, a program of Indian music, was added to the Friday 8-9 pm slot.
     The annual WWUH Banquet was held at the Ramada Inn in East Hartford. Arnold Klinsky, New Director of Channel 30, was the guest speaker.
     During the summer a new poetry show "Poesis" was created by student Margaret Johnson.  The first shows featured poets Helen Swarts and Charles Lipka.   
     Operations Director Marty Peshka and Chief Engineer John Ramsey, along with Jeff Winn, Doug Maine and other volunteers, produced 14 live concerts from Bushnell Park during the summer of 1979. Included in the line up were such diverse artists as Stephen Grappelli, Maria Maldaur, John Hartford and Doc Watson. The last two concerts included a live simulcast with Connecticut Public Television!  The station also aired the 6th Annual New England Fiddle Contest from Bushnell Park on May 26th as well as the Thursday night CRT Concerts from Bushnell Park, one featuring Betty Carter.  
      In the fall, arrangements were made for the Tolcott Mountain Science Center to provide weather reports to the station!  These segments provided basic weather forecasts developed by the students at the school along with commentary on any interesting astronomical events.  
     In June, WWUH acted as the point of origination for an interview for the Australian Broadcasting Company on the topic of Franco-Russian writer and revolutionary Victor Serge.  Dr. Richard Greenman, assistant professor of French at the University and an authority on Serge, was in our studio for the program, while the interviewer and host of the program were in his studio, in Sydney, Australia!  The two stations were interconnected via phone lines and satellite circuits.
     In December, the station started a series of live evening jazz broadcasts from the 880 Club in Hartford called "Jazz Alive!"  Volunteer Mort Fega was the host, and the series featured such performers as trumpeter Ted Curson. Gene Bertoncini and Bobbi Rodgers,   and audience reaction was very favorable to the Monday night broadcasts.
     The Metropolitan Opera will began its 40th season in the fall with WWUH carrying all of the performances in stereo while most of the other New England stations still had a mono feed.
     An interview with rock drummer Bill Bruford was recorded and aired on both the Synthesis and Jazz programs.
      Bill Domler approached the ECOM in November about doing a weekly folk show.  The ECOM was very enthusiastic.
      A champagne reception for WWUH Classical listeners was held at the A.S.K. house on Prospect Avenue on February 16th.
      Marathon goal was set at $20,000.  Premiums included yellow with blue sign wave logo T-shirts for a $5 pledge, and Guide Subscriptions for a $10 pledge.  As part of Marathon, Myth America appeared live on Monday Accent on Jazz, the Hartt Jazz Band appeared on Tuesday, Dave Ramsey and his big band played for the wine and cheese party in room G, the Hartford Arts Ensemble was aired live on Thursday and live bluegrass was carried on Saturday. The event ended with a party on Sunday featuring the band Talking Drum in the Cafeteria.
     Marathon returns totalled $22,500!
      Incoming GM Patty Kurlychek wrote the following in the Guide:
     "This year I am anticipating a change in the focus of our priorities. We have tried to develop our musical offerings to the point of unique diversity which we feel is unequaled in our listening area.  Now that our music has reached a point where it can stand on its own, I feel that the station must reach out and development itself in terms of talking to people.   
     We need more programming that talks to people who live in West Hartford, Hartford and in Bloomfield, South Windsor and so on. WWUH will be trying to develop our connection with these and other communities so that we can keep an ear to the heart of the public."

Opera on WWUH

your "lyric theater" program
with Keith Brown
programming selections for the month of 
January 2020


SUNDAY JANUARY 5TH Verdi, Falstaff We begin lyric theater programming for the year 2020 with one of the greatest of all operatic comedies. Falstaff (1893) is a marvelous finale to Giuseppe Verdi's career as an opera composer. He regarded it fondly as a labor of love. With an excellent libretto by Arrigo Boito to work from, Verdi handled the dramatic aspects of Shakespeare's comedy with a mastery unparalleled in anything he had previously written. I have previously broadcast two compact disc releases of Falstaff, and a vintage LP release, too. The 1994 Sony Classical CD release came on Sunday, April 30,1995. Baritone Juan Pons starred as the fat knight, with Riccardo Muti conducting the orchestra and chorus of the famed La Scala opera house in Milan. (A recording made live in performance in June of 1993.) Then on Sunday, February 5, 2005 came the LSO Live CD issue, this recording also made live in performance at The Barbican in London in May of 2004. Baritone Michele Pertusi portrayed the ageing reprobate nobleman. Sir Colin Davis was on the podium leading the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. In our WWUH classical music record library there's an old recording of Falstaff on Angel monaural LP's. It was taped at London's Kingsway Hall in 1956 with Herbert von Karajan directing the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus and the members of what was billed as the Philharmonia Opera Company. The star singer in this studio recording was the incomparable Tito Gobbi, arguably the greatest Italian operatic baritone of the twentieth century. Those Angel LP's I drew upon for broadcast on Sunday, October 7,2007. The supporting cast here also consisted of operatic luminaries of the mid twentieth century: Rolando Panerai, Luigi Alva, Elizabeth Schwarzkopf and Anna Moffo. The German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau was one of the single most recorded voices in the history of recorded sound. He undertook the role of Falstaff for a production of Verdi's masterpiece staged by the Vienna State Opera in 1966. At the artistic helm of the production was America's star conductor/composer Leonard Bernstein leading the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus of the Vienna Staatsoper. The critics raved about Bernstein's sprightly and concise interpretation of the score. The cast for this Viennese staging could hardly be bettered, all of them eminent vocal artists of the 1950's and 60's such as Regina Resnik, Graziella Sciutti, Rolando Panerai again, Hilde Rossl-Majdan, Erich Kunz and Gerhard Stolze. The recording was released stateside on three Columbia Masterworks LP's in 1966.
SUNDAY JANUARY 12TH Salieri, Tarare Antonio Salieri (1750-1825) advanced his career as an opera composer as a junior colleague of the great reformer of eighteenth century opera, Christoph Willibald Gluck (1714-87). No one is certain to this day how extensive a hand Gluck actually had in the composition of the French lyric tragedy Les Danaides (1784), but it seems he graciously allowed Salieri to take credit by name for it. I presented the world premiere recording of the Gluck/Salieri collaboration on Sunday, June 19, 2016. Salieri composed at least forty operas during his long career- many more than his supposed rival Mozart. His early comic opera La Locandiera (1773)was highly successful, and a recording of that work went over the air on Sunday, January 31, 1999. Another later opera buffa, Falstaff (1799) I presented three times, in 1994, 1996 and 2014 in its world premiere Hungaroton recording. Salieri collaborated with the French author Beaumarchais (of "Marriage of Figaro" fame) as his librettist in Tarare (1787), a fantasy parable of an opera set in the Orient like those popular "Turkish" operas of the eighteenth century. Parisians flocked to the premiere of Tarare. Salieri's music was splendid and the noble sentiments expressed in the libretto were said to have inspired the French revolution. The opera's success outlived the revolution and the Napoleonic regime that followed. Tarare made it to Vienna and other European capitals, and it continued to be staged up to 1826. Modern listeners to the world premiere recording of Tarare may well be reminded of Mozart's "The Magic Flute." It was made under the auspices of the Centre de Musique Baroque of Versailles in late 2018 for release through the French Aparte record label on three compact discs in 2019. Christophe Rousset leads the period instrument orchestra he founded Les Talens Lyriques and the choral singers of the Centre, with a cast of ten vocal soloists.
SUNDAY JANUARY 19TH Karchin, Jane Eyre This will not be the first time I have aired a recording of an operatic rendering of Charlotte Bronte's famous novel. On Sunday, May 18, 2003 you heard British composer Michael Berkeley's Jane Eyre in its Music Theatre Wales production                   of the year 2000 as co-produced by BBC Radio Three and released on a single Chandos compact disc. Those who love Bronte's novel might complain that Berkeley's opera leaves out way too much of the story. As an opera Jane Eyre gets a much fuller treatment from American composer Louis Karchin (b. 1951). Diane Osen's libretto can be credited with a more literarily in-depth adaptation of Bronte's book. In recorded form Karchin's Jane Eyre is a longer work, clocking in at two hours and ten minutes spread out over two Naxos compact discs. The gestation of Karchin's work spread out over a long period: four years, 2010-14. It won the 2012 award in composition from the Center for Contemporary Opera. Its premiere staging came in 2016 at the Kaye Playhouse in Manhattan, and subsequently it was recorded in 2017 with Karchin himself conducting the Orchestra of the League of Composers. There's a singing cast of nine characters. Jane is soprano Jennifer Zetian. Edward Rochester is tenor Ryan MacPherson.
SUNDAY JANUARY 26TH Shakespeare, All's Well That Ends Well Spoken word presentations have always been part of my broad spectrum concept of lyric theater programming. I have broadcast recordings of many of William Shakespeare's plays. In the more distant past these were on early stereo Decca/Argo LP's. These studio recordings, made between 1957 and 1964, were part of Decca's series of the complete recorded works of Shakespeare, issued in commemoration of the of the four hundredth anniversary of his birth. It was an audio project of historic significance equal to Decca's series of Wagner's Ring cycle of operas recorded during the same period with Georg Solti conducting the Vienna Philharmonic and a singing cast of some of the greatest operatic voices of the mid twentieth century. Decca's Shakespeare project engaged renowned director George Rylands and the Marlowe Dramatic Society of Cambridge University, plus other "professional players," who were some of the best Shakespearian actors and actresses that Britain possessed. Many of them remain famous names even now in the twenty first century. In 2016 the entire Decca Shakespeare series- all thirty seven plays, the sonnets and narrative poems- was reissued on compact disc to mark the four hundredth anniversary of the playwright's death. I have acquired the 100 CD Decca/Argo boxed set. I draw upon its discs again this Sunday as I did most recently on Sunday, June 30th of last year with broadcast of the early blood n'guts tragedy of revenge Titus Andronicus (1589?). There are three so-called "problem comedies" or "unpleasant plays" in the Shakespeare canon. One of them, Measure for Measure (1604) I broadcast on Sunday, February 26, 2017. Another one of these un-comic comedies is All's Well That Ends Well (1602?). It has never been a popular play. Yet it is full of what we expect from the Bard: insight, wisdom and lovely poetic speech.

The WWUH Scholarship Fund


 In 2003 WWUH alums Steve Berian, Charles Horwitz and Clark Smidt helped create the WWUH Scholarship Fund to provide an annual grant to a UH student who is either on the station's volunteer Executive Committee or who is in a similar leadership position at the station. The grant amount each year will be one half of the revenue of the preceeding year.

              ALL NIGHT SHOW with Gus T

If you are up with the baby, working the line, driving a truck, pulling an all nighter, on your way to the gym or you just like staying up all night like we do, tune in to the All Night Show with Gus T every Friday from 3 to 6 AM on WWUH 91.3 or wwuh.org. If for some reason you choose to keep normal hours, you can also hear us on the archives.
We take a root and branch approach to Americana and you are likely to hear folk, blues, old country and honky tonk, no depression, jazz, roots rock, singer/songwriter, lo-fi, hi fi, bluegrass and every other cool thing we can think of. It's our music: old and new, loud and mellow, foreign and domestic. Thanks for allowing us to help you with the soundtrack to your Friday morning.
Here are some of the things that will be featured over the next couple of months.
January 3: The Bakersfield Sound, Part 1 - We will spin tunes from the city that brought us Buck Owens and Merle Haggard and so many others. Home to many southerners transplanted during the Great Depression, it became a place of exceptional creativity.
January 10: Rig Rock - We will be featuring songs about trucks. Lots of trucks, but absolutely no "Convoy." We promise.
January 17: Country Hits of 1964 - From Johnny Cash doing Dylan covers to Bobby Bare covering Ian and Sylvia, the great folk scare of the early 60's had a crossover impact on the country charts.
January 24: OKra - We will concentrate on the alternative country bands that were based in Columbus, Ohio in the last 1980s-and early 1990's and recorded for OKra Records.
January 31: Album music of Y2K - These are oldies now...it's 20 years and these roots recording are part of the fabric of our century.
