Aired Saturday mornings 11:00am – 12 Noon on Radio Two. Debuted in 2000. The knowledgeable and effervescent Robert Harris, a long-time host and producer at the CBC, hosted this hour-long program. The program, which was a clear reflection of Harris’s personality, was a celebration of the history of music and its contexts. According to the CBC it celebrated “…the power of music to entertain, to illuminate and to be joyous.” The content varied dramatically from week to week, as Harris used both his eclectic musical tastes and his keen musical ear to illustrate many very different aspects of the composers’ and performers’ arts.
