3rd Streaming Celebrates the Birthday of French Composer Claude DeBussy and His Impact on Classical Music and Jazz - Aug 18th, 2020

Mid August always brings the date when Claude Debussy was born. As we're at 2020, that happened 158 years ago. Great Impressionistic music by this Frenchman has made a non-stop impact on classical music and jazz. Debussy's harmonies are heard often in those genres and sometimes in film scores as well.

Other composers on the list this week are Andre Previn, Eddie Sauter, Lowell Libermann, Dmitri Shostakovich, John Coltrane, Lennon and McCartney, and from two local musicians, Melissa Collard and Jacám Manricks. 3rd Streaming airs Tuesdays 1-3 PM and Thursdays 9:30-11:30 PM. Stream at kdrt.org

Swell programming! Thanks Gary. When is the next fund drive ?

Excellent show with a wide variety of music. I particularly like the symphonic works you play, including the rarely heard symphonies by 20th century masters. 

Here it is Saturday at 7:00pm and the most beautiful sounds are coming out of the radio. Ahh, of course, it's Gary Chew's show 3rd Streaming. Thanks for doing such great work sharing Great Sounds not usually heard. Thanks.

Thanks to you.  Whoever you are.  You and I have such good taste.  :)  -gc
