The National Endowment for the Arts announced yesterday that Radio Arts Foundation will be the recipient of a Grant for Arts Projects in the category of music. The NEA awards these grants to promote “public engagement with, and access to, various forms of art across the nation, the creation of excellent art, learning in the arts at all stages of life, and the integration of the arts into the fabric of community life.” Classic 107.3 FM will use the funding to support the production of “The Slatkin Shuffle,” a weekly radio program in which Slatkin shares anecdotes about the eclectic collection of songs in his playlist.
“I am grateful to the NEA for honoring our show, ‘The Slatkin Shuffle,’ with a generous grant,” Slatkin said. “We have worked hard to make the program educational and entertaining, and I hope to continue for several more years.”
“The Slatkin Shuffle” airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. Central and Sundays at 3 p.m. Central on Classic 107.3 FM, the Voice for the Arts in St. Louis. 100 hours of the radio program are available for on-demand listening on SoundCloud.
