KSUI adds 'Schickele Mix' on Sunday evenings
CITY, Iowa -- The popular classical music program "Schickele Mix"
has joined the Sunday evening line-up on KSUI 91.7 FM, the University of Iowa's
public radio station.
The hour-long, weekly, nationally syndicated program hosted by Peter Schickele
is broadcast at 6 p.m. Sundays on KSUI. It uses classical music as a starting
point, but then transcends into freeform associations that inform, entertain
and illustrate a particular musical concept or theme.
Schickele, recognized for the "discovery" of P.D.Q. Bach, is a
composer, humorist and author with an impressive range of musical skills.
As an entertainer, Schickele is a satirist who sports a colorful on-stage
presence and an array of musical styles. He is renowned for the composition
of works that run the musical gamut from chamber music to comedy recordings.
Schickele has earned four Grammy awards; has released 11 albums; and has published
11 editions of "The Definitive Biography of P.D.Q. Bach."
A native of Ames, Iowa, Schickele tours with a program of original songs.
He now resides in New York City with wife, poet Susan Sindall.
