Boyce Lancaster a moment before going on-air trying to figure out our new ID!


Some hardy souls braved the 7 degree weather this morning to witness history as WOSU premiered Classical 101! Listen above to the first few minutes of our first broadcast, which starts with a special message from President Gordon Gee of The Ohio State University followed by an intro by our morning classical host Boyce Lancaster and his first music selection on the new Classical 101 – the choral arrangement “Gloria” by John Rutter.

    I started out as an intern at WOSU 820. My last radio airdate was on 820 (December 20, 2008). Irony. But t’s a new dcay and I’m ready for 89.7 (again) … can you use an anchor? :)))) Really …

    I would like to congratulate WOSU about its programming decisions regarding the switch to the FM dial for both classical programming and all news and interview programs.

    Also, I really appreciate having the BBC World News America. It is interesting to get a somewhat different perspective on the news. I found it entertaining that the BBC program spent an entire show reporting on the sentencing of Michael Jackson’s doctor.

    B-o-o-o-o-o ! I am sad to see WOSU am go to 89.7 fm. I listened to Bluegrass Ramble on my 60 year old Crosley floor radio for a long time. Nothing sounds as good as old time radio on an old time radio. Sure, I can pick it up on my Japanese fm radio, but it will never be the same.
