The Bradetich Foundation Classical Showcase

www.bassonthebroadband.com

The Bradetich Foundation is proud to announce that it is joining forces with Bassonthebroadband to launch Classical Showcase on Sunday, November 11, 2012. This weekly internet radio broadcast solely for the classical double bass will reach all corners of the world featuring the performing of leading artists of our time, legends, young stars, competition winners and many more.

www.bassonthebroadband.com is the brain-child of Brian Bromberg, Grammy award winning electric bassist. His radio broadcasts currently run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week focusing primarily on electric bass and jazz upright styles. The Bradetich Foundation Classical Showcase will integrate classical bass into the programming.

The broadcasts will air on Sundays from 9-12 Eastern time, 6-9am Pacific time and 16-19:00 European time. The shows will also be podcast and available at this web site so that they can be replayed at any time.

Please share this information with all of your friends, colleagues, students and those outside of the bass world who will appreciate great music making.

The first broadcast will feature the following artists: Badila, Chirkov, Iuga, Karr, Levinson, Martin, McTier, Meyer, Quarrington, Rabbath, Rotaru and Zhang.
