KPAC has specialized in broadcasting classical music and fine arts information since November 7, 1982. For the most part, its programming is created from its own library of classical music recordings – a collection that provides varied and comprehensive opportunities to sample the entire range of the music. The schedule also includes live broadcasts of The Metropolitan Opera and recorded concerts by some of the world’s finest symphony orchestras. Specialty programs include music for children, early music and new compact disc releases. KPAC is listened to regularly by as many as 60,000 people.
