Revolutions Per Minute

Sundays 8-10pm

Classical & contemporary music with in-studio guests, commentary, live performances, and occasional sharing of classical vinyl.

The piano you’re hearing now is being played by Sarah Cahill, host of the “Revolutions per Minute” program, which is heard Sunday evenings here on KALW. 

Cahill will be joined Friday, November 22nd by Regina Schaffer in a performance that is part of the "New Keys" series. It highlights new works for “pianos and their cousins” – instruments such as vibraphones and toy pianos. It all takes place at the Center for New Music in San Francisco. The concert begins at 8:00pm.   

On this week's Revolutions Per Minute, guest host David Latulippe chooses some vinyl from his high school days in addition to music from Claude Debussy, Arnold Bax, and Jean Francaix.  Revolutions Per Minute ~ Sunday 8/25 8-10pm.

The new name for "Then & Now" with host Sarah Cahill.  "Revolutions Per Minute" speaks to the musical revolutions of Beethoven, Stravinsky, and John Cage, among others, and evokes the 33 rpms many of us treasure, whether we're sentimentalists or audiophiles.
