The Record Shelf with Jim Svejda
Everything you wanted to know about classical music but were afraid to ask is
answered on The Record Shelf. Host Jim Svejda, one of the most respected
critical voices in classical music, has guided the program since 1983 when he launched
it, and the program continues to bring listeners imaginative, thematic classical programming.
Svejda reviews old and new recordings and presents artist retrospectives and insightful
interviews. His thumbnail sketches of individual composers are one of a kind, and his expert
and highly opinionated style has made The Record Shelf a favorite among loyal listeners
throughout the United States.
Svejda has been delighting KUSC/Los Angeles listeners since 1978 with his witty, meticulously
crafted essays on diverse composers, conductors, and artists and any other subjects that attract
his musical fancy. Beside The Record Shelf
