Collectors’ Corner with Henry Fogel

Sundays at 10:00 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
