Broadcast of the Beethoven/Webern/Hartmann Concert

Our local excuse for a classical radio state, KDFC, 102.1, will broadcast last week's SFS concert in full on Tuesday, February, 22 at 8 p.m. Pacific Time. You can judge for yourself whether you would have cheered or jeered and when. (Oh, and don't believe their Web site, which says Hartmann's 5th is on the program. It's the 6th.)

If I sound surprised by this, I am. One recent broadcast consisted of two tonal standards - perhaps by Tchaikowsky and Mozart - that had been originally featured on programs that included, among other works, Turnage's Three Screaming Popes. I do not know if that work was included in a contemporaneous concert broadcast.
