When Classical 104.9FM first came to the airwaves in 2017, our goal was simple: to provide listeners in Southeast Louisiana with classical music, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In recent years, though we’ve had to scale back on our local ambitions, the return of local content to Classical 104.9FM has always remained a priority and we are thrilled to announce the premiere of Crescent Classical: a series of locally produced radio programs that showcases the work of local classical music organizations.
Tune in this week to hear the first of these locally produced shows: Birdfoot Backstage and Radio Edition of MASNOtes.
