Emeritus Prof. Hatch Featured on Radio

On Friday, January 26, from 12 noon to 2pm, Emeritus Professor Martin F. Hatch of Cornell’s Departments of Music and Asian Studies will be the featured guest on WRFI Community Radio, exploring Indonesian music as well as his own life and career. The special episode of the “Crazy Words, Crazy Tune” program, hosted by Roger Kimmel Smith, is entitled “Feeling for Life: Indonesian Music Special with Marty Hatch.” The program will include extensive interview segments revealing how Hatch’s curiosity and interest in gamelan music led him to pursue ethnomusicology, and eventually spurred him to found the Cornell Gamelan Ensemble in 1972.

The program can be heard at 88.1 FM in the Ithaca area, and 89.7 FM across a wider swath of the southern Finger Lakes, as well as over WRFI's live stream. Following the January 26 broadcast, the program will be available for two weeks for listening on demand.
