About 15 years ago I used to to host on the Cambridge community radio station, 209radio. I’m not really someone with a classical background so it was a way of educating myself on the genre. The show was called the “The Bare Minim” to reflect the level knowledge I had. I used to pick pieces by what was being performed in Cambridge, film scores, and things on a collection of about 10 CDs from the genre that I owned, and things like the 2001: A Space Odyssey soundtrack. The station wound up in 2010 but I had a rich and rewarding time doing this, and met many talented broadcasters and technicians who volunteered their efforts.
I have put together a tracklist of pieces I remember playing on the show on Spotify. Hope you enjoy!
