Sundays at 8:00 pm
Collectors’ Corner is about discovering and rediscovering music that rocked the world in days gone by. Host Henry Fogel crafts an historical narrative out of his personal record collection, a treasury amassed from decades of jaunts to record stores and resale shops across the globe.
“Collectors’ Corner features a wide range of recordings that I feel are true classics of the industry…either unusual repertoire that I feel deserve a wider public, or performances unique in their interpretive profile, sense of commitment, and intensity. Many of these recordings are long out-of-print, or hard to locate in the United States.”
Henry Fogel is dean and distinguished professor of the arts at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. Prior to academia, he ran the League of American Orchestras. Between 1985 and 2003, he served as president and CEO of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Earlier in his career he ran the National Symphony in Washington, D.C.
Radio has always been a passion for Henry Fogel; from 1963 to 1978 he was vice president and program director of radio station WONO in Syracuse, New York.
In addition to running the CCPA at Roosevelt, Dean Fogel continues to consult with orchestra managers around the country.
