Ottawa radio program devoted to Kytasty this weekend

Irena Bell, host of the Ukrainian radio program on CHIN Radio Ottawa is devoting her Nov 16 & 18 radio programs to the music of Hryhory Kytasty on the occasion of the 100th anniv. of his birth this year.

She was devastated to learn that his son Andrew's house burnt down during the California fires in mid-October, together with the fabulous Kytasty Foundation site. What a dreadful loss, for them and for the world.

Info on the fire can be found here and here.

Irena's Radio Program airs on CHIN Ottawa 97.9 FM Fridays 10-11p.m. & Sundays 8-9 a.m. Can also be heard live (streaming) at http://www.chinradio.com/ .

UPDATE:
It appears they may be considering rebuilding the Kytasty Foundation site, so if you have downloaded material from the site in the past, please consider sending Andrij Kytasty a CD copy of it. Mail CDs to:

The Kytasty Foundation
