2016 was a memorable year for Classical 101 and the arts in Columbus, check out the stories from our blog over the past year. 

Columbus was treated to more great performances by our talented performing arts groups. At Classical 101, we said goodbye to long-time program director Beverley Ervine, morning host Boyce Lancaster retired in September, fortunately he returned to the air waves in November. 

In October, we welcomed our new program director Cheryl Dring. You can hear her Saturdays from 8am-1pm on Classical 101.
