Kate Remington

Music Director, Classical music program host

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington received a degree in piano performance and mass communication from the University of Wisconsin. Her first radio position was with Wisconsin Public Radio, which included a wildly successful request program on Saturday mornings. She then moved to Chicago to join the fledgling nationally-distributed, Beethoven Satellite Network, originating from WFMT. Then Kate set out for Vermont Public Radio, to become the chief announcer there. In Vermont Kate met her husband, Dick Roberts, and that's where their son, Sam was born.  Kate and her family relocated to Fairfield to join WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.

When she's not on the air, Kate can usually be found at a stable in Monroe, CT, where she trains her horse, Tonka, in dressage.

Tonight we'll enjoy impressions of London in music, including pieces by Vaughan Williams and George Gershwin.

Get your morning off to a sunny start with the Little Symphony for Winds by Charles Gounod.

We'll visit Spain tonight with Debussy's impression, "Iberia," from his Images for Orchestra.


Prokofiev's first piano concerto drew fire because of its difficulty, so he followed it up with a second, twice as long and twice as hard! Vadym Kholodenko tackles it this morning.

We'll bring our spring-like weather indoors tonight with Debussy's impression, "Printemps."
