Loran Fevens

  

For more than 25 years, Loran Fevens hosted the popular weekly program The Music Box on WITF.  Even after his retirement, he enjoys the music and the connection with his listeners so much that he has continued to produce special holiday programs for WITF from his home in Nova Scotia.  Join us this Sunday evening at 8 p.m. for his company and his selections of music written before 1800 celebrating a summertime mood.

Listen to our live stream online.
