Asheville, North Carolina, United States
Broadcasting Sundays 8-10 p.m. from WSFM-LP in Asheville, NC, Orchestral Maneuvers is a "classical" music show for people who like heavyweight music. No chandeliers, no wigs, no ruffles. The focus is on 20th and 21st Century composers like Shostakovich, Schnittke, Bartok, Saariaho, Ligeti, et al. Lots of rarely-heard composers and rarely-played works by well-known composers, OM is weighted towards music written for smaller ensembles and solo instruments. Orchestral Maneuvers is what a good classical music radio station might sound like if it broadcast a midnight to 3:00 a.m. shift. I wouldn't really know. The station in my town sticks to Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.
