Collectors Corner
Feb 17 @ 1:00 pm – 2:59 pm


Collector's Corner - Henry Fogel (Show Logo 3)
Collectors’ Corner is about discovering and rediscovering music that rocked the world in days gone by. Host Henry Fogel crafts an historical narrative out of his personal record collection, a treasury amassed from decades of jaunts to record stores and resale shops across the globe.

Collectors’ Corner features a wide range of recordings that I feel are true classics of the industry…either unusual repertoire that I feel deserve a wider public, or performances unique in their interpretive profile, sense of commitment, and intensity. Many of these recordings are long out-of-print, or hard to locate in the United States.”

Henry Fogel is dean and distinguished professor of the arts at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. Prior to academia, he ran the League of American Orchestras. Between 1985 and 2003, he served as president and CEO of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Earlier in his career he ran the National Symphony in Washington, D.C.

Sunday Night Oldies
Feb 17 @ 5:00 pm – 6:59 pm

Sunday Night OldiesIf you love the oldies — from the 50s to the 70s — you’ll love WVBI’s Sunday Night Oldies show. Originally hosted by Phil Becker, it was our first locally produced show originating from our BIC Center studio every Sunday night. Phil worked with you, our listeners, to sort through his “stacks of wax” to find the “platters that matter.” We still use those playlists today as we carry on the show in Phil’s memory.

Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on WVBI.
