Lovers of classical music on MPBN are a discerning lot, and they can instantly tell whether an announcer knows his or his or her stuff. That’s why MPBN feels blessed to have someone with Rodney Flora’s knowledge and experience at the microphone when regular classical music host Robin Rilette is away from the station.
Before coming to MPBN in the spring of 2008, Rodney spent nearly 30 years at WCRB-FM, a classical music station in Boston, serving for the last 12 of those years as the station’s music director. When not at MPBN, Rodney works as a classical music broadcasting consultant and does programming for the World Classical Network run by Cape Cod Broadcasting in Hyannis, Massachusetts.
A native New Englander and former French horn player who also at one time sang with the Handel and Haydn Society in Boston, Rodney currently lives in Southwest Harbor and is an avid collector of English classical music.
