To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself,
incredible and inconceivable.

     Aaron Copland

Time changes the way we live our lives… not always in convenient or satisfactory ways.  Recently, I was asked whether radio as we know it will survive in the wake of the internet, Facebook and Twitter, smart phones, and heaven knows what will emerge in the next few years.  Radio has always been one of those things in our daily lives that is easy to use.  And radio has shown us over the years that it is resilient and has staying power.  We’ll take that for now.

Another question that comes up is, “Will Classical Music and Jazz still be relevant in the coming years?”  The music we present has survived for centuries, orchestras and ensembles are still performing it, Jazz musicians are still making music, and Blue Lake Public Radio continues to succeed.

Blue Lake’s success is predicated on our fundamental belief in the power and importance of music.  We believe that music has intrinsic value, contributes to our quality of life, and breathes energy into our culture.  Music encourages young talent to excel.  It inspires creativity and promotes productivity.  Music is in Blue Lake’s DNA.

Other radio stations have abandoned their music formats, but we remain focused on bringing you the highest quality Classical Music and Jazz every day.   With your help, we will continue to do so.

Please take a moment now to contribute to the future of Blue Lake Public Radio.  It’s easy, just click here.

From everyone here at Blue Lake, thank you for your generous support.
