Dacia Clay is the music librarian for Houston Public Media’s Classical 91.7 station. She is also the host of “Classical Classroom”, a weekly podcast that helps listeners learn more about the world of classical music. What makes this show so interesting is the fact that Dacia has a deep dark secret…
I first learned about Dacia Clay and the “Classical Classroom” podcast from composer Daron Hagen. Each week, Dacia invites a classical music pro to come onto her show to teach her different topics. If you’re new to classical music, then “Classical Classroom” is the perfect podcast for you. Dacia loves to learn and is refreshingly honest in sharing what she likes and doesn’t like.
