Every Saturday Jill Pasternak’s interview show Crossover spotlights notable music and musicians from the classical and jazz worlds – and the periphery as well!  Totally un-scripted and spontaneous, Crossover sounds like nothing else on the dial — more like friends chatting over coffee than a broadcast interview.

This Saturday July 20, 2013 Jill’s program will feature two classical guitarists giving listeners a beautiful background soundscape to play against the swirl of their air conditioners during this heatwave that is gripping the North East.

The program is broken into two segments. The first featuring Philadelphia classical guitarist David Cohen. Selections from Cohen’s CD, DAVID COHEN: GUITAR will be played. Jill and David also talk about his work for the Monmouth & Ocean Counties Food Bank and the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. Jill writes about Cohen, “This week we feature a musician who has gone well beyond his role as an entertainer to become an active member of humanitarian causes he believes in”. Portions from the sale of his CD go to Fox Chase Cancer Center.

In a repeat presentation the second part of the program features classical guitar Milos Karadaglic. The stunning success of 31-year-old classical guitar virtuoso  is validated after the first notes of Pasion, his second Deutsche Grammophon release. Known simply as “Milos,” the guitarist’s technical expertise and respect for the music he loves enhances the beauty of a varied menu of popular folk and challenging classical selections. The sprinkling of recognizable time-worn tangos contrast perfectly with the excitement of the “nuevo” world of Astor Piazolla. Terrific!
