New York Philharmonic Extends Radio Broadcasts Year Round

By Ben Mattison
31 Mar 2006

The New York Philharmonic's national weekly radio series, which currently runs 39 weeks per year, has been expanded to 52 weeks a year, the orchestra announced.

In addition to concerts from the Philharmonic's current season, the series will now include 13 weeks of selections from the orchestra's archive of commercial recordings.

"The New York Philharmonic, which this season is marking the 75th anniversary of its first live national radio broadcast, has been an almost continuous presence on national radio," said Zarin Mehta, the orchestra's president and executive director. "We are thrilled to now be able to share our concerts with music lovers around the world every week of the year."

The New York Philharmonic This Week is a two-hour program broadcast on 250 stations around the country through the WFMT Radio Network. In New York City, it is heard on WQXR 96.3 FM on Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

Programs are also available for a week following the broadcast on the New York Philharmonic's web site, nyphil.org.
