'Classically Black' to feature W.G. Still

A program on African-American composer William Grant Still, a new
addition to the "Classically Black" series produced by WILL-FM's
Roger Cooper highlights Black History Month programming in
February on WILL radio and television.

"William Grant Still: A Centennial Tribute" features a generous
sampling of Still's works, as well as an intimate discussion with
Judith Anne Still, daughter of the man often called "the Dean of
Negro Composers." The program will air on WILL-FM (90.9) at 4
p.m. Saturday and at 7 p.m.  Feb. 20. It also will air on WILL-AM
(580) at noon Feb. 25.

The program is the fifth in the "Classically Black" series,
distributed nationally by Public Radio International. Last year,
more than 200 stations carried Cooper's program on contralto
Marian Anderson.

WILL television and radio programs include coverage of the
achievements of African Americans all year long. But many
programs for Black History Month focus on particular groups of
African Americans. A copy of WILL's program guide is available by
calling 333-1070.
