Weekend Host Tom Burge says “Adieu”

After eight years of hosting Sunday evenings at WDAV, Thomas “Tom” Burge will host his final show on June 24, 2018.

Upon reflecting on his time working with the station, Burge shared the following message:

Thomas "Tom" Burge

Sunday, June 24 is my final show. I can’t believe it. WDAV took a chance eight years ago, and we’ve been going strong since then, and loving it. But unlike Leonard Bernstein who seemed to fit many professional lives into one, the time has come for me to hang up the mic and focus on my performance and teaching career.

Thank you so much for the opportunity, for the fun, for the good friends I have made at WDAV and in the community, and through this true wonder of classical music.

It’s not really a goodbye, though! Please come and find me at performances! I’ll still be around the cultural circles and sharing music – it’s what I do!

Please keep the love of classical music alive, and support this wonderful station, and all the live music organizations in this region!

And so, as Beethoven said so beautifully in his 25th Piano Sonata,

Music That Moves Me

There’s no other show on WDAV-FM quite like this. Sure, it’s all classical music – liberally defined. Beyond that, it defies definition. Except for this: “This is the music that floats my boat,” the host tells his listeners. “I hope you’ll like it, too.”
