The term "classical" music is a misnomer. "Classical" refers to a certain time period in music...from approximately 1750-1830, and overlaps with what is called the "romantic" period. I prefer the terms symphonic or chamber music to describe music...both terms cross all periods of music, and make a general reference to the size of the ensemble (chamber ensembles are smaller and used in more intimate settings; symphonic ensembles are larger).

I'm with you dnaden...

And since you are in Pasadena, I invite you to tune to KOLA, FM 99.9 from San Bernardino. They definitely play the best classics (rock classics, that is).

When I had the urge for some symphonic or chamber music, I tuned to FM 91.5, the USC radio station. They have a good to very good taste, however .... they talk a lot. It feels like everybody at the USC station is advertising him/herself as a 'wise' fella.
