Perspective

Monday thru Friday, Noon to 4 PM, and Sundays 2-4 PM

On weekday and Sunday afternoons Mindy Heusel offers her highly enjoyable musical Perspective. Mindy likes to broaden her repertoire selections to include music by late 20th-century and 21st-century composers, music from movie soundtracks, and world and folk music. Mindy enjoys creatively integrating music by cross-over artists into WVIK's mostly classical format. Her provocative approach to music programming provides compelling evidence that classical music remains relevant and dynamic and that it continues to resonate with today's audiences.

Interviews posted below have had the music selections substantially truncated due to copyright law. For the time being, please enjoy the personalities and information made available in the interviews!
