Afternoon Classical Host
Victor hosts both classical and jazz programs on CapRadio. With years of experience as a radio host, actor and photographer, his interests in music and the arts are broad. He's done voiceovers for radio and TV, co-hosted a nationally syndicated weekly radio program out of San Francisco, and has written, directed and/or acted in more than 40 radio plays.
A huge fan of a great melody and addicted to rhythm, he took piano lessons as a child, took up bass guitar in his rock n roll teens and into his 30s joined drumming circles with his conga. Born in San Francisco and having also lived in Boston, he's attended countless opera, classical, rock and jazz concerts literally from coast to coast.
Off mic at CapRadio, Victor assists with programming, web and social media content. Away from the station he loves visits to the coast, his native habitat, or to any quiet and shaded spot along a creek or river.
In your car, at work, or at home, enjoy CapRadio's relaxing and inspiring selection of classical music. Our daily playlists provide information on the pieces, performers and composers featured, plus links if you're interested in buying music.
Jazzstream is the 24-hour jazz service of Capital Public Radio. Veteran jazz announcers pull from the vast library of new and time-tested tracks to bring you what we call Great Jazz by Jazz Greats. Support comes from Terre Rouge Easton Wines.
