How KDFC Could Make a Difference

KDFC could play a real variety of music, instead of sticking to the 18th to 20th c. tonal straight-and-narrow. There's a serious problem with a classical music station that doesn't play opera or any other vocal music (except for that hour or two of sacred music Sunday mornings); that plays more Finzi than Berg, Schoenberg, and Webern put together; that plays nothing new or local unless it happens to be on the SFS broadcast; that rarely seems to play full compositions any more; that plays hardly any chamber music; that rarely plays anything that could be characterized as other than pleasant background music.

Give those students you supposedly care so much about something a little challenging to listen to, will you? You're part of the problem.
