A former KPFA programmer and current host of “RPM” on KALW, Cahill is a relentless champion of contemporary classical music: She plays it on her radio show, commissions it for her and others to perform, and promotes it in concerts, most notably in the annual columbarium extravaganza. Tune in to hear about her inspirations and motivations, and listen to the recorded music she chooses to share tonight. You’ll also hear new music by Meg BairdRobin Flower & Libby McLaren, Orchestra Nostalgico, and other surprises.
