Kansas Public Radio has a “new” director of classical music. Friday, September 20, was Michael Keelan’s last day as Classical Music Director and Morning Classical host. Michael served KPR well over his four-year stint at the station — bringing exceptional musical knowledge to the morning classical program, expanding the number and variety of in-studio performances, and helping pioneer KPR’s Live Day broadcasts. Filling Michael’s shoes is longtime Evening Classical host and listener favorite Cordelia Brown.
