The WFMT Radio Network is pleased to announce our offering of the one-hour series, Mad About Music with host Gilbert Kaplan.

For more than 10 years Mad About Music has delved into the musical heart of some of the world’s most celebrated and influential personalities. Originally airing in New York on WNYC and WQXR, Mad About Music is now syndicated for broadcast.

Created and hosted by Gilbert Kaplan, Mad About Music’s format is part interview, part musical performance. Internationally famous guests select five key musical works and discuss why those pieces are important to them. The interviews are always personal–and often humorous—as some of the world’s most famous people reveal aspects of their personalities largely unknown to the public.

“Gilbert Kaplan is an ideal host for Mad About Music combining considerable interviewing skills with a grand passion for music,” said WNYC/WQXR radio president and CEO Laura Walker.


This series is available free of charge to all affiliate stations for one broadcast through March 31, 2015. If you have any questions or for more information, please contact Tony Macaluso at (773) 279-2114,  Estlin Usher at (773) 279-2112,, or  David Sims at (773) 279-2027,
