Portfolio Pianissimo

My 2008–2009 weekly two-hour radio show on Radio UTD, the UT Dallas student radio station, celebrating all instruments with keyboards. About half of each show was made up of new (<8 weeks) music, and the rest was just me playing what I liked and sounding like Terry Gross on an off day.

The theme track is Wendy Carlos’ wonderful Moog performance of Bach’s Sinfonia to Cantata No. 29 from Switched-On Bach.
