Beethoven Network

Program Director/Host:   Peter Van De Graaff

The highly successful classical music radio format service of the WFMT Radio Network, the Beethoven Network, celebrates its 28th year and continues to grow. 

Beethoven Network provides one-hour modules of classical music, culled from WFMT's extensive library of more than 85,000 recordings.  The service was originally designed to help public radio stations expand their local operation and improve the quality of late night programming.

Designed for you and your listeners, all BSN hours can be fully customized as your local program product.  The service features flexibility in each hourly module, permitting network or local break opportunities, top-of-the-hour news, underwriting credits or commercials and local program promotions.

Here are some comments about Beethoven Network (all quotes are from letters on file):

"Radio is a companion to people and Peter Van De Graaff is an excellent one.  I like his style and format's very intelligent programming."

"We are overwhelmed (but not surprised) by the positive response of our listeners to your return to our airwaves...we have a steady stream of comments, and many of them have backed them up with hefty financial contributions."
