Sergio A. Mims Airs John Adams' 'The Death of Klinghoffer' from Nonesuch CD; Slipped Disc: 'Chicago to receive full Klinghoffer broadcast'

Sergio A. Mims of in Chicago writes:

Since the Met Opera is scared (or intimated)  to have a live broadcast of their current production of John Adams' opera The Death of Klinghoffer because of the controversy and the protests somebody has to have the guts to do it

And that's me. (Let's see I get any protests and I really hope I do...)

The Met won’t air or screen its controversial John Adams opera. So a Chicago radio station has stepped in. Land of the free, &c.

Next Weds Oct. 29 I will be broadcasting the Nonesuch recording of The Death of Klinghoffer on my radio show on WHPK-FM Chicago 12-3PM (Central Time) since the Met Opera will not broadcast it on their radio program or do a live HD screening in the theaters
The show can be heard of the station’s website livestream online at www.whphk.
Someone has to do it.
