Opus 9 - Old White Guy Realm

Although many people understand that classical music comes from more places than western Europe, the stigma still exists, and it must be challenged. In this opus, Garrett chats with Katy Henriksen, who does her part in fighting that stigma as a classical radio host at KUAF-FM in Arkansas. She offers a peek into her programming techniques, and also offers a look into the culture of the northwest part of her state. In the prelude, Garrett and Scott rehash their recent vacations, and discuss a poignant article that calls for the death of classical music.
