90.9 WGUC

Cincinnati Public Radio

Mark Perzel starts off Valentine’s Day weekend 7 p.m. Friday with two hours of romantic classical music on his annual “Love Greetings” show on WGCU-FM (90.9).

A romantic show “just made so much sense – the combination of love, and the power of classical music. So many nuances, so many shades, and this music captures every emotion that love can generate,” says Perzel, Cincinnati Public Radio’s executive producer and host of “The Book Club @91.7” at 7 a.m. Saturdays on sister WVXU-FM.

If Mark Perzel wasn’t broadcasting “Tunes From The Crypt”  music on 90.9 WGUC-FM on Halloween, he’d be cranking up the same creepy classical music on his front porch during trick-or-treat hours.

That’s how the popular “Tunes” tradition (airing 6 p.m. Saturday) started on our sister Cincinnati Public Radio station 17 years ago.

It’s one of my favorite local radio specials and –full disclosure here – a show I’ve written about for years, long before I brought my Media Beat blog to WVXU-FM this year.

If you don’t have tickets to see “Lumenocity” in person, here’s how you can watch or hear the Washington Park concert.

And you definitely should watch.

Sunday Baroque, created and hosted by Suzanne Bona, airs Sunday mornings on WVXU’s sister station 90.9 WGUC, along with more than 100 other stations across the country. Each week is a celebration of music from the baroque era (1600-1750) and the years leading up to it. Music by Vivaldi, Bach, Handel and other composers, performed by the best musicians of yesterday and today. Maybe you'’re a lover of baroque music, maybe you'’ve never heard it. Or maybe you have and just weren'’t aware of it. Here to help explain baroque music and why it may be more familiar than most realize, is Sunday Baroque host Suzanne Bona and Cincinnati Public Radio Classical Music Director Jessica Lorey
