Sunday Night at the Opera

Sunday from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.

Barb Herbert aired her first Sunday Night at the Opera program on March 12, 1995. She says that she never thought it would be on the air this long. She calls it "the world's longest term paper."

Barb says, "The research is what makes it fun, because opera can teach you history, mythology and geography. An opera can be funny, tragic, violent, silly or incomprehensible, depending upon who wrote the libretto. I never thought my bachelor's degree in English would land me a job at a radio station."
