WWNO's Farrar Hudkins talks with Todd Simmons, Executive Director of the New Orleans Opera Association, about the company's production of Rossini's "The Barber of Seville" this weekend.

For fifteen years, from August 2001 to May 2016, Farrar Hudkins was one of WWNO’s most familiar voices, serving the station as Announcer/Producer, Chief Announcer, Chief Classical Announcer/Producer, and interim Music Manager. From 2007-2016, he programmed all classical music for our classical stream, and over his fifteen years he interviewed many musicians, including Joshua Bell, Carlos Miguel Prieto, the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, and Emmanuel Ax. Farrar participated in New Orleans' musical community as a trumpet player. Today Farrar is still present on New Orleans Public Radio as the voice of many WWNO and Classical 104.9 underwriters, working for us from his home in South Florida.
