In summer, music goes outdoors, and bends to the lighter side of the repertory. The outdoors can be a magical setting for music, but then there are rain showers, ambulances, and low flying planes. On Saturday at ii, we will hear music recorded at such famous summer locations as Lewisohn Stadium in New York and the Hollywood Bowl in the Los Angeles area. 

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will head outdoors.
