Ted Otten & Michael Kownacky have been hosts of The Dress Circle, a one-hour program on WWFM – The Classical Network, for over twenty-five years.  (This can be heard live on-line at www.wwfm.org on Sunday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. EST or through webcasts at http://wwfm.org/webcasts_dress_circle.shtml.) Both Ted and Michael have written reviews and columns for The Times of Trenton as well as other publications in the eastern United States.

      Thank you for the kind words, and we hope you’ll continue to enjoy the show. For us, since we’ve been doing it for so long, we just go into a room and have fun. We often forget that we’re creating something to which others listen, and we’re extremely pleased when people listen and actually like what we do!

      Be well…

    I believe that “the Dress Circle” can also be heard over WIPR in Puerto Rico. Which other stations broadcast the program?

    Obviously, my family and I do enjoy the program, but sometimes the schedule on WWFM doesn’t work for us due to other commitments, so we’d like to catch it over other internet streams when we can’t over WWFM (my internet radio doesn’t pick up WIPR’s stream).

      Thank you for your note. I think Puerto Rico is the only place we know about that carries the show, but you can listen to our webcasts from the homepage of http://www.WWFM.org. With any luck, the show is uploaded within a day or to of it airing, so you can listen to it at any time. Here is the link for our webcast page: http://wwfm.org/webcasts_dress_circle.shtml

      Thank you very much for listening to the show. When Ted and I started doing the show, the station was extremely small, and there was no Internet to even think about broadcasting around the world. For us, it is a humbling experience to get e-mails from around the world. We just go into the studio once or twice a week to have fun.

      Best wishes to your family.

      Michael Kownacky
