Record Shelf

GroupAccount image
Everything you wanted to know about classical music but were afraid to ask is answered on "The Record Shelf." Hosted by Jim Svejda, one of the most respected critical voices in classical music who has guided the program since 1983 when he launched it, "The Record Shelf" brings listeners imaginative thematic classical programming.

Svejda reviews old and new recordings and presents artist retrospectives and insightful interviews. His "thumbnail" sketches of individual composers are one-of-a-kind programs, and his expert, irreverent and highly opinionated style has made "The Record Shelf" a favorite classical series among loyal listeners throughout the United States.
