Guest DJ Maria Bachmann
Many thanks to Maria Bachmann, whose hectic touring schedule finally matched up with our own – a couple of years after we first talked about her coming in as guest DJ. It was a real treat having her with us at last; her introductions & selections couldn’t have articulated the guiding principles of classics without walls any better if we had planned it together – but the set was all hers. Thanks again, Maria, and come back soon.

Alas, our aircheck CD burner failed at the halfway point. Sigh. This means two things: first, we’ll get a truncated podcast up first, then try to recreate as much of the broadcast as possible; and second (as usual, and as longtime listeners know all too well), little KUSF needs your money!
