Tomorrow morning (6/13) at 8:30 a.m. ET on WPRB, Teri Towe (host of “Bach On Thursday”) will celebrate novelist Dorothy L. Sayer’s birthday with a special broadcast.
Sayers was best known as an author of detective fiction, having written many novels and short stories that featured her character Lord Peter Wimsey. Full details from Teri after the jump. This will be fantastic!
Tomorrow, June 13, 2008, from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM, Eastern Daylight Time, the 115th anniversary of the birth of the legendary detection novelist, Dorothy L. Sayers, and the 94th birthday of her close friend, scholarly colleague, and biographer, Dr. Barbara Reynolds will be celebrated with a special broadcast on WPRB 103.3 FM.
The broadcast, “The Concert at The Winter Gardens”, will recreate the concert that provides an alibi for Henry Weldon in the “Lord Peter Wimsey & Harriet Vane” detection novel, Have His Carcase, which is set in a fictional English seaside resort in 1931. For the recreation of the programme of the concert, recordings made by English artists in the 1920s will be used.
The host for “The Concert at The Winter Gardens” on WPRB, the student radio station at Princeton University, is Teri Noel Towe, a Princeton alumnus (Class of 1970), known to a decade and more of New York City area classical music radio listeners as “The Laughing Cavalier”. Towe also is a Dorothy L. Sayers aficionado, and, in 2007, he presented a paper on Bach and Lord Peter Wimsey at the American convention of The Dorothy L. Sayers Society.
