If it’s December, it’s Orgy season at WHRB.
(Fall 2010 schedule here.)
Not to get technical about it, but the old ‘HRB orgies were better than the present ones.
Back in the day, the orgies were, well, orgiastic – 90 consecutive hours of John Coltrane in 1990, 207 consecutive hours of Johann Sebastian Bach in 2000, eight hours of Jazz Puns in 2009, which also featured seven days (129+ hours) of live Grateful Dead performances, a ten-day stretch of Franz Joseph Haydn’s music, and a five-day Dylan Alphabetical Orgy.
This fall, though, it feels like WHRB is chopping up the orgies to fit the station’s normal programming schedule: jazz in the morning, classical in the afternoon, whatever at night.
Or is the hardworking staff just not listening hard enough?
You tell us.
