Host Steve Staruch takes your requests on Friday Favorites for Aug. 11, 2023, including a dedication of a waltz by Johann Strauss Jr. Joining as a guest is Project DJ (Plus) co-host Mark Scannell.
From the time he was a young kid listening to Chicago White Sox games on the radio, Mark dreamed of being a radio announcer. When Mark was in high school, his Latin teacher started a group called the Mozarteum. Friday evenings were devoted to learning about and listening to Mozart. His high school years might have been decades ago, but through those years Mark has maintained and deepened his love of classical music. He is the author of three books, including The Gratitude Element and A Village It Takes, as well as a retreat leader and a Minnesota wedding officiant.
