Classical 101 by Request

Fridays from 1-3pm

Every Friday at 1 p.m. host Christopher Purdy will play two hours of music requested by you, our listeners. It could be one of your favorite classical pieces or something by a favorite classical composer or artist, either for yourself or someone else.

Whether it’s for a special occasion or to enjoy at work or play, all you have to do is fill out the form below. Please tell us why the song is important to you so Christopher can share that with our listeners.

While it may not be possible to play every request, we’ll try to accommodate as many as possible. Requests received by Wednesday evening will be on Friday’s show. We do ask you limit your request to once a month in order for us to include as many folks as possible.
