Welcome to the Blog of Rich Samuels, Host of “Anything Goes”

Wednesday, 17 October 2012 | Rich Samuels

On the left is a photo of me (snapped by April 14, 2009, by Chicago Sun-Times photographer Brian Jackson) seemingly yelling at Rod Blagojevich. The former Illinois governor had just exited Chicago’s Dirksen Federal Building where he had entered a “not guilty” plea to a wide variety of corruption charges, including the allegation that he had attempted to market, for personal gain, the seat in the U.S. Senate left vacant when Barack Obama was elected President.

I was part of the media scrum (a correspondent for the “Chicago Tonight” show which airs on WTTW, one of Chicago’s public television stations) that pursued Blago that day: and, to be quite frank, I only appear to be yelling at the disgraced former governor: in reality, I was trying to locate my camera operator who had disappeared into the crowd, nowhere to be seen.

A month short of three years after that picture was taken (it’s recently been recycled as the cover art for Natasha Korecki’s book “Only in Chicago”), Rod Blagojevich began serving a 14 year sentence at the Federal Correctional Center Englewood near Denver. I wasn’t around to witness the denouement of his prosecution: I retired from television journalism at the end of 2009 and, as Garrison Keillor once put it, “moved up to radio”.

Since November of 2010 I’ve been hosting WORT’s “Anything Goes” show, bringing my listeners classical music every Thursday morning between the hours of 5 and 8.

To the greatest extent possible, I try to feature the work of local artists and composers, especially those who are younger. When necessary, I have the capability of recording interviews and performances in the field.

I hope you’ll be able to join me each week. I also hope you can continue to provide WORT with the financial support that makes this kind of programming (which is obviously not for everyone) possible.

When I’m not on the air you can follow me via this blog, via Twitter, Facebook or my personal website.

Madison Opera’s “Dead Man Walking” Adaptation of Sister Helen Prejean’s book by Jake Heggie & Terrence McNally, 8 pm on 4/25 and 2:30 pm, 4/27, Overture Center-Overture Hall. $121-$18. 608-258-4141 Call: 608-258-4141 Web: www.madisonopera.org “Dead Man Walking makes the most concentrated impact of any piece of American music theater since West Side Story.” – The Guardian (London). Since its premiere in 2000, Dead Man Walking has become a modern classic, one of the most important, powerful operas ever written. Based on Sister Helen Prejean’s book that inspired the movie of the same name, it tells of a nun’s journey as the spiritual advisor of a convicted murderer on Louisiana’s death row. From its shocking beginning to its emotionally searing final scene, this opera changes everyone who encounters it. Its stunning score and intense story combine into a work that “must be reckoned something of a masterpiece – a gripping, enormously skillful marriage of words and music to tell a story of love, suffering and spiritual redemption” (San Francisco Chronicle). Parental advisory: This opera contains nudity, graphic violence, and explicit language, and is not recommended for anyone under age 18. Saturday April 26 noon at Grace Episcopal Church. 116 West Washington Ave., Madison Grace Presents: New and Historic Music for Baroque Flute Millie Chang brings together an ensemble of some of Madison’s most talented classical instrumentalists for a unique recital for baroque flute featuring compositions from three centuries.

03/19/14 2:56 PM | Rich Samuels

Friday March 21, 7:30 pm at Overture Center-Overture Hall, 201 State Street, Madison The Madison Symphony Orchestra Concert Organ Series presents Janette Fishell. Music of Bach, Sokola, Syth, Robb and Vierne. How many concerts does it take to play the complete organ works of J.S. Bach? Internationally renowned organist Janette Fishell found out that 21 was the magic number, performing the full cycle of this music. Now she will bring some of this magic to Madison. The third installment of the 2013-2014 Madison Symphony Orchestra Overture Concert Organ series will feature the internationally renowned organist, making her Overture Hall debut Friday, March 21, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. The program, entitled Bach and Beyond, will include organ music composed as far back as the early 1700s, and as recently as 1976, displaying the wonderfully diverse repertoire at the hands of the modern organist. Three pieces by J.S. Bach, Prelude and Fugue in G minor, BWV 535, Selections from Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin, BWV 1001, and Prelude and Fugue in E-Flat Major, BWV 552, will exhibit the Baroque style in which the organ flourished. Fishell will then move on to three works composed in the late 1800’s or later. Ethyl Smyth’s O Trauerigkeit, O Herzeleid, Lionel Rogg’s Partita sopra “Nun Freut Euch” and Louis Vierne’s Organ Symphony No. 3 in F-sharp minor, Op. 28 will display the intriguing evolution of organ music in recent centuries. Described as “…a tour de force” (The Diapason) and “…fabulous…flawless!” (comments from a National Convention of the American Guild of Organists), Janette Fishell is a seasoned recitalist, having performed in many of the world’s greatest concert venues in Tokyo, Cambridge, Berlin, Budapest, and Prague. She has been featured at five national conventions and five regional conventions of the American Guild of Organists, and is professor of music and chair of the organ department at the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. Single tickets are $20, and a $10 student rush will be offered on the day of the performance. The concert is sponsored by John and Christine Gauder, with additional funds from Pleasant T.
