Saturday Matinee Welcomes Host Warren Black

All Classical Portland is excited to announce Warren Black as the host of this season of Saturday Matinee! Long time listeners who enjoy waking up and spending their weekday mornings with Warren will appreciate another chance to keep their internal weather “sunny” on Saturday mornings.

Now through November, join Warren every Saturday at 10:00 AM PT for a parade of favorites on Saturday Matinee. You’ll hear a vibrant mix of opera, show tunes, great film themes, comic operettas, and even American band music.

Tune in at 89.9 FM in Portland or anywhere in the world via the live player on our website.

“Saturday Matinee was one of the first programs on All Classical Portland that really grabbed me when I happened onto it a decade ago. It’s a real treasure and one of many things that make this station unique. While there’s no way I could ever fill Ed Goldberg’s shoes, I’m honored to carry on his great work–and I look forward to kicking off the weekend as your Saturday Matinee host this season.”

Warren Black

After more than two decades with All Classical Portland, our previous host Ed Goldberg has retired. All Classical Portland’s Director of Music and Programming John Pitman welcomes Warren as this season’s host of Saturday Matinee.

“To my mind – and ears – Warren Black is the perfect All Classical host to succeed Ed Goldberg, the originator of this ‘role.’  Warren’s deep love of a wide range of musical styles, whether it’s Broadway, musical theatre, jazz-influenced, film or Americana, make him the ideal curator of Saturday Matinee. His well-known easy going and cheerful demeanor on the air makes Warren the ideal guide from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturdays.”

John Pitman

Saturday Matinee airs weekly from June through November at 10:00 AM PT. Listen at 89.9 FM in Portland or worldwide through our our website’s player.
