Alex James's Date Night

Saturdays, 7pm-9pm

Alex James studio Classic FM

Each Saturday night, Alex James explores the anniversaries, birthdays and 'on this day' events from the world of classical music.

Every Saturday evening from 7pm-9pm, Alex will be taking a look at the coming week and shining a spotlight on those composers, performers and venues around the globe that have reason to be celebrated.  

There will be joyful births to celebrate and deaths to mourn; historic premieres to mark; award ceremonies to remember. 

"If it happened in the week ahead, I’ll play it!" says Alex.
