Maybe it was a comet or an eclipse or something in the water.

Four contemporaries, working in four cities, completely apart, were all born within 25 months of each other, and these four came to define the style of the 18th century High Baroque. Yet their music is quite unalike.

We've got music of Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, and Rameau this week.

How’s your love life? Stevie Ray Vaughn can answer that question.   Are you a victim of unrequited love?  Perhaps you need Derek and the Dominoes.  Do you need a second chance?  Maybe Solomon Burke can help.  Does the direct approach work best for you?  If so - Muddy Waters is your man. 

Tune in this Tuesday @ 7:00 PM and SisterMary and Jeanne may jump start your heart.

Franz Liszt transcribed all nine Beethoven symphonies for solo piano, and although he was known to perform at least some of them in concert, they were published with the amateur pianist in mind.

Just how many amateurs were actually capable of playing them is open to question. Listen to the Symphony No. 7 this Thursday and see what you think. After that, we'll have music from the Italian Baroque, and we'll conclude with a virtuoso work for cello by 20th-century Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly.

A lot of great bands started in a garage.  The Velvet Underground, The Clash and Nirvana just to name a few.
 
This month WFIT 89.5 FM is looking for the next great garage band on the Space Coast.
