Starting next month, Des Moines’ classical music fans will have to adjust the presets on their radios. Iowa Public Radio Classical will be moving down the dial from its current 101.7 frequency to 97.7 FM. Target date for the move is April 7, but if it happens before that, safe money says you’ll notice.
This week’s Pick o’ the Week is at the retooled Hull Ave. Tavern on Friday, March 27. Head up that way at 9 p.m and check out Panthallasa, along with Ancient Elm and the ever-glorious Superchief. No cover. Mahalo. CV
