RADIO CLASSROOM For a while Lily and Matt made a few recordings for a radio class on classical music. This was an attempt to discuss classical music in a more accessible way for an average listener (like Lily who is not classically knowledgeable). They called their show Classically Trained and some parts were played on WRFI 88.1 in Ithaca NY. Here are a few rounds of the show!
