Each week, Pipedreams host Michael Barone shares selected organ works and performances, and in doing so, encourages listeners to engage both their ears and imaginations to gain greater appreciation of this instrument. He talks with composers, organists, organ builders and restorers. The show features brand new instruments in churches and concert halls, plus historic pipe organs recorded in locations around the world, from ancient instruments in vast cathedrals to the “mighty Wurlitzers” of movie house fame. Pipedreams remains the only nationally distributed weekly radio program exploring the art of the pipe organ, and is aired on public radio stations around the country including KUAC. It is just one of the many weekly programs available on KUAC3 online, KUAC HD3 or KUAC TV 9.7.
