WFMT I strongly dislike the listener. call in dedications. If you have them, the announcer should make them. –Bernie
Frankly, I hate it. And I will no have it on the rest of the of the afternoon.
I think the markets are closed today, February 17, 2014.
Would some one please wake up mr. frumpkin and tell him the stock markets Re closed toda, for Presidents Day? The numbers he just gave we’re Friday’s closing figures.
i love the station, because MUCH of the time it stays focused on classical music… but market, weather sports, and general news are available everywhere, ad nauseum… as are other musical and entertainment genres, so tuning into FMT and hearing newsy updates not centered on classical music, or hearing other kinds of shows featuring folk music or whatever, or tedious talk shows from Studs Terkel or Andrew Patner or whomever, are always hugely disappointing… and what’s the point of annimal kingdom month? Really ?
WFMT seems to be playing more early music these days. Not just Bach and Vivaldi, but also Kraus, and Biber, and Elizabethan lute songs, and a viola da gamba concerto! All this in addition to Candice Agree’s wonderful Baroque and Before program. Awesome! Keep up the good work!
No web stream, time to put on francemusique
Thank you, Candice, for your great selections for rush hour.The music is perfect for.early dinners!
thanks for Rusalka tonight – Maria (they call the wind) Stracke
We take WFMT with us on our travels. We’re sitting in the apartment in Paris, 11:30 am (4:30 am Chicago time), enjoying our petit dejeuner and WFMT’s live feed via the WFMT app
Could you fit into your playlist a piece I think is very good – Vasliy Kalinnikov’s Symphony No. 1.
I think he is a rather obscure composer. Thank you.
Andy Strimaitis is too kind but if you have a chance, note it is his son, not his daughter, who is a student at Merit Music.
What did I just hear on Carl’s program, or did my ears deceive me? I can see why recorded ads don’t go with the programming.
I was shocked to hear a pre-recorded political ad on WFMT this morning at 8:30. Does this suggest an endorsement or perhaps a change in station policy? Will we be hearing more such ads? It seems so out of character for the station. Perhaps an explanation could be made to listeners.
WFMT does not solicit political advertising, but cannot lawfully reject
any political candidate who is interested in advertising on WFMT. Radio
ads have to include the candidate’s voice to ensure that the candidate
knows and approves the content of the ad. All media outlets must air
pre-produced ads as is.
Listeners should quell their petty complaints and give thanks for this wonderful radio station. I’m listening this morning in rural Senegal, able to access the live streaming for the first time in 5 weeks! Chicagoans are truly lucky to have it all the time!
Thanks for the explanation. We are fortunate to have a station like WFMT.
Pre-recorded political ads: YUK.
“I lost my horn…” Thanks for all the great music on this snowy March morning.
Are you ever going to SHUT UP and play music? Really, every peice is followed by several ads. Policital ads now too?! I may be done donating to WFMT.
