Long-time Classical Host Hangs Up The Headset

Stan Whippo, from his perch behind the mic, has entertained listeners with his classical music offerings for over twenty years.
Stan Whippo, from his perch behind the mic, has entertained listeners with his classical music offerings for over twenty years.

Stan Whippo has hosted the live, four-hour classical music show Matinee every weekday on our sister station, Classical 94.1 WBNI, for more than twenty years.

And being in his early nineties, Stan has decided that now feels like the right time to retire.

Last year, WBOI's Julia Meek had an opportunity to talk with him about what classical music means to him, and how it drives his passion for public radio.

Today we revisit that conversation, as Stan presents his final show, and on behalf of all the staff, volunteers, and listeners in our community, we thank you, Stan Whippo, for sharing your music, humor, and friendship with us over the airwaves these many years.Listen to Julia Meek's interview with WBNI's Matinee host, Stan Whippo, originally broadcast on May 24th, 2017, as part of her Behind the Mic series.
