Chris Felcyn of Detroit’s WRCJ 90.9 FM recently sat down with representatives from Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s (DSO) management and musicians and allowed them to present statements about the current negotiations. Felcyn then presented those comments from DSO Cellist Haden McKay and DSO President and Executive Director Anne Parsons on his program, The Well-Tempered Wireless. In an age where print outlets continue to dominate, having an audio resource where listeners can take inflection and tone into account is a luxury…
Felcyn does a good job at following up with questions to McKay’s statement but Parsons’ statement did not include questions. Overall, the segment goes a long way toward helping everyone form a clearer view on the situation. You can listen to the audio file under the August 16, 2010 heading located at www.wrcjfm.org/index.php/in-studio-menu.
