A familiar host is returning with a program new to WFIU!
Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin brings the longtime host of Saint Paul Sunday back to our airwaves beginning May 5. The program will air Sunday through Thursday nights at 7, as well as maintaining its current timeslot, weekdays at noon, on our digital-only WFIU2.
The program delves into a wide assortment of topics in the world of classical music. Each week’s five episodes will build off a single theme ranging from composer biographies to explorations of various cultures, musical styles, and time periods. Recently, Bill has devoted a week to profiling musical works inspired by Shakespeare, to celebrating great African American composers, and to discovering and deciphering messages hidden within pieces of classical music.

Starting Sunday, May 11, WFIU’s interview program, Profiles, will move to the noon hour, allowing us to bring you classical music five nights a week starting at 7.
