From the WQXR Archives : About
WQXR opens up its archives this summer with a new weekly series devoted to some of its most popular programs. Since WQXR has been around for more than 77 years, that’s a lot of historical radio to delve into.
For the month of June, we’ll revisit a show that was a fixture on WQXR for 36 years, The Vocal Scene with George Jellinek. George Jellinek created the program in 1969, a year after he became WQXR’s music director. The weekly one hour program showcases opera and great opera singers and featured Jellineck’s impeccable insight into the art of great singing.
