Host: Chris Felcyn Bio

Chris Felcyn is a producer and program host for WRCJ-FM, 90.9 in Detroit, a public radio service managed for the Detroit Public Schools by Detroit Public Television.

A 40-year veteran of public broadcasting, Chris' career was heavily frontloaded with television experience as a producer-director for WTVS and later as a successful free-lancer specializing in large-scale corporate presentations. But through it all, he always made time to dabble in classical (and jazz) radio.

His longest-running project is The Listening Room, a popular Sunday morning staple for many Detroit area listeners, featuring a cornucopia of classical, jazz and world music. His annual sendup of Super Bowl Sunday, The Symphony Bowl, has been awarded Best in Category twice by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.Since 2005, Chris has been the host of The Well-Tempered Wireless, heard weekday afternoons on WRCJ.

Chris is also executive producer of DSO Unmasked, and The Civic in Concert, produced in cooperation with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

Among the interview guests who have appeared on Chris' shows are Joshua Bell, Regina Carter, John Corigliano, Antal Dorati, Bela Fleck, Leon Fleisher, Marvin Hamlisch, Sharon Isbin, Neeme Jarvi, Erich Kunzel, Ruth Laredo, Drew McManus, Edgar Meyer, Gil Shaham, Leonard Slatkin, and Ellen Taafe Zwilich.

Off the air, he was a contributor to the Omnibus Essential Guide to Classical CDs published by G. Schirmer, and has earned two Emmys from the Michigan chapter of NATAS for his work in public television.
