R.I.P - Dick Alfonsi, WHFR Big Band host

WOD is very sorry to report that Dick Alfonsi, longtime host of Big Band programming Friday mornings on WHFR, passed away this last Thursday.

He will be remembered by all, and we are very sorry to hear of his passing.
In tribute, What's Opera, Doc will turn over all of the Tuesday show to various Requiem masses, in honor of a great fellow show host.

An Opera Quote for today

"Opera once was an important social instrument—especially in Italy. With Rossini and Verdi people were listening to opera together and having the same catharsis with the same story, the same moral dilemmas. They were holding hands in the darkness. That has gone. Now perhaps they are holding hands watching television."

-Luciano Berio
