One of the first sounds that Richard Strauss heard as a baby was his father's french horn. That love of the horn stayed with Strauss his whole life. We'll enjoy his Horn Concerto No. 1 during our music today, along with Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain. Tune in at 9 am on 91.1 and 107.5 FM and our music stream.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington joined WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.
