Latin American Classical Notes.

Latin American Classical Notes is a radio program hosted by John L. Walker on WUVT-FM 90.7 in Blacksburg, Virginia. Airing on Sundays from 3 to 5pm (ET), each program is organized around a specific aspect or characteristic of Latin American classical music, such as a particular style or genre, or, a program may instead focus on the music of a specific country or even that of an individual composer. In any event, the program is designed in such a way so as to be both entertaining as well as illuminating.

On this page we will be posting each program as it becomes available. In addition, John provides detailed program notes in which you’ll find the composer names and titles of each piece, as well as some interesting information about each selection.
