WMNR's Peter Shimkin

Since August of 2009, Peter Shimkin has hosted Tuesday Afternoon Classics.  Peter draws from his personal music collection for his programs and tells us he strives for variety during his three hours. Recently he has incorporated a lifelong love into his work for the station: opera. Hear Peter guest hosting Tuesday's Evening at the Opera from time to time when he brings years of operagoing knowledge to the art of sharing opera with radio listeners. He has a particular interest in the work of the now-defunct New York City Opera. On March 24, he will be joined by friend and longtime opera buff Octavio Choy. The evening's program will feature Verdi's "I Lombardi Alla Prima Crociata." Join Peter weekly on Tuesdays from noon to 3:00  and for guest spots on Evening at the Opera, Tuesdays, 8:00 pm.

WMNR Streaming on Demand

As we've shared in the past, Will Duchon of Friday Evening Classics offers his programs The Night Café and Words & Music to be heard on the internet as streaming on demand, as does H. William Stine of Turntable for One.  This month we're pleased to tell you that Garrett Stack of Broadway Bound and American Jukebox is also archiving his programs after they air and making them available to listeners.  They join Jay Harris who put 19 of his One Great Song programs available. Haven't yet tried listening yet?  It's simply a recording of a radio program, archived on the internet, available for listening anytime you are online.  These three fantastic WMNR broadcasters all stream their programs at Public Radio Exchange, found at prx.org.
