KRCU Takes ‘Caffe Concerto’ on the Road

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., March 12, 2013 — KRCU 90.9 FM will be taking their midday classical music program “Caffe Concerto” to Southeast Missouri State University’s Sikeston campus on Tuesday, March 26, for a live broadcast.

The show will air from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on 90.9 FM and 88.9 FM and at krcu.org.

The Master Chef at the “Caffé Concerto” is Tom Harte whose culinary perspective on classical music is a natural outgrowth of his interest in food. An award-winning cook, Harte also writes a food column for the Southeast Missourian and was a founder of My Daddy’s Cheesecake, a dessert emporium in Cape Girardeau.

Harte will dish up finely prepared classical music as he always does, but he will also talk with staff and faculty at Southeast’s regional campus in Sikeston to find out what services they offer and what is happening in the Sikeston community. In addition, copies of Harte’s recipe book, “Stirring Words,” will be available for a donation of $22 to KRCU and Harte will autograph copies of the book.

KRCU General Manager Dan Woods said, “We are excited to travel to one of the communities we serve and have the chance to interact with our listeners. We hope that listeners in the Sikeston area will stop by and say hello.”

As the area’s source for diverse musical programming and award winning NPR news, KRCU strives to continuously excel in providing the highest quality public radio programming to Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. The station broadcasts 24 hours a day from the campus of Southeast Missouri State University on 90.9 FM in Cape Girardeau and 88.9 FM in Farmington and Ste. Genevieve.
