For well over a decade, Sun­day morn­ings have found Sacred Space host George Ride­out explor­ing One’s way to Spir­it.” UMFM is sad to announce that the jour­ney has come to an end and the 8 – 10 AM times­lot will no longer fea­ture Rideout’s inquis­i­tive spir­i­tu­al pur­suits, nor pro­vide the shared sanc­tu­ary for lis­ten­er and host alike.

We would like to thank George – and his pro­duc­er Lynne – for all their efforts at and on behalf of the sta­tion dur­ing the entire run of Sacred Space. Their absence from the sta­tion will cer­tain­ly leave a hole in the col­lec­tive heart of UMFM.

Like­ly no sur­prise to the spir­i­tu­al sojourn­er, the end of one thing often marks the begin­ning of anoth­er so at the same time, UMFM is pleased to announce the return of for­mer pro­gram­mer Nathan Zass­man, whose new pro­gram Zass­man Plays the Clas­sics will take over the Sun­day morn­ing timeslot.

We say for­mer pro­gram­mer” because while Zass­man has not been involved with the cur­rent run of UMFM, he spent sev­er­al years at the for­mer CJUM back in the late sev­en­ties. Zass­man brings not only his expe­ri­ences from those years, but also a wealth of knowl­edge about Clas­si­cal music and a strong desire to share that pas­sion for the form with listeners.

As a spe­cial wrin­kle, the first episode tack­les the sec­ond let­ter of the alpha­bet as Zass­man shares some of his B sides.” Tune in every Sun­day at 8am for Zass­man Plays the Clas­sics, fol­lowed by our clas­sic Jazz pro­gram Fas­ci­natin’ Rhythm at 10am.
