Summertime in the Bay Area, and great classical music on KDFC. What a combination! Our celebration begins on Friday, June 21st, the official first full day of summer, when we kick off our Summer of the Great Composers. Once an hour we’ll play the music of our great composer of the day, and we’re taking requests at KDFC.com. See the daily lineup of 40 great composers below, and if you can think of anybody we’re missing, your suggestions will help us round out the top 50. It’s the KDFC Summer of the Great Composers – Friday June 21st through the month of July, from Classical KDFC and KDFC.com!
