We’re playing one-hit wonders throughout the day: composers who are remembered for primarily one composition.

On The Morning Program with Carl Grapentine, you’ll hear an hour of music by Russian one-hit wonders including Borodin, Mussorgsky, and Ippolitov-Ivanov.

On Middays with Lisa Flynn, you’ll hear Pachelbel’s Canon and Gigue in D, Humperdink’s Hänsel und Gretel Suite, and an excerpt from Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana.

On Afternoons with Kerry Frumkin, you’ll hear the famous aria “Vesti la giubbia” from Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci during an hour of one-hit wonders from Italy, in addition to an hour of one-hit wonders for a pops concert.

Tune in all day to hear these one-hit wonders and more, and tell us your favorite one-hit wonders in the comments below.

    “Ach so Fromm” is a beautiful aria. I wish the version sung by Fritz Wunderlich was selected.
