From the Library: The “Classical” Music Bin

An old sta­ple of most music stores was “The Clas­si­cal Music Bin”, a bin of mis­cel­la­neous albums, then cas­settes, then CDs from the Renais­sance through Mod­ern Clas­si­cal peri­ods.  Every­thing was lumped togeth­er under the term “Clas­si­cal” and dumped in a jum­ble into one space in which cus­tomers could dig for rar­i­ties and bar­gains.  The “Clas­si­cal Music Bin” is not so com­mon today in the age of dig­i­tal music pur­chas­es and down­loads, but I, for one, miss it!

And so, today, on Radio Riel’s Main stream, we fea­ture a huge vari­ety of music that peo­ple often cat­e­go­rize as “Clas­si­cal”, as a trib­ute to the fad­ed, but not for­got­ten, Record Store Clas­si­cal Music Bin.  Enjoy the explo­ration!

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://main.radioriel.org . Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
