Classical Snack

Classical Snack is a monthly feature here at WNED Classical. The goal is to provide tidbits of information about classical music that might enhance your listening experience. Each installment of Classical Snack will be a fun-sized treat - like a little candy bar given out at Halloween. They’ll take no more than two or three minutes to digest. Look for a new Classical Snack on the third Friday of each month. 

Hear Here | Town Ballroom

Initially called The Town Casino in the ‘40s, '50s, and ‘60s, the Town Ballroom on Main Street in Buffalo, NY, hosted legends such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and Miles Davis. In the following decades, the building would change ownership multiple times. Nearly twenty years ago, hoping to establish a premiere concert venue in Buffalo, Artie Kwitchoff and Donny Kutzbach of Funtime Presents decided to “restore the old girl to her former glory.” In this episode, Donnie and Artie share their story of transforming this iconic venue to showcase local, national, and international acts. Bentley also visits with Max Kerman, the lead singer of Arkells, to find out what it’s like to play here. Finally, we meet Town Ballroom superfan Jim Lemoy, who has officially obtained VIP status, attending more than 400 concerts and counting. 

Hear Here is a production of Buffalo Toronto Public Media for Visit Buffalo Niagara.
