How many years have you been attending orchestra concerts?
"Jean and I have been attending since about 1962, the year C.K. "Pat" Patrick and I co-founded WCLV."
Your favorite composer and symphony?
"Sibelius Symphony #1"
When did you start broadcasting The Cleveland Orchestra concerts on WCLV?
"We've been broadcasting concerts since 1965. Now it's 2010 and we're still broadcasting Orchestra concerts as well as streaming them live over the internet. WCLV will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2012, and I've been commentator for what's become the longest running continuous orchestra broadcast series in the history of American radio!"
And in Bob's own words from his WCLV invitation to Orchestra lovers everywhere…
"This is Robert Conrad. As a Cleveland Orchestra Trustee and member of the Orchestra's Heritage Society, I'd like to invite you to join my wife, Jean, and me in support of this wonderful Cleveland treasure. The Orchestra provides all of us with world-class music right here in our home town and represents Cleveland at its finest throughout the world. And one of the ways that we support the Orchestra is through a charitable gift annuity. A gift annuity allows us to make a generous gift and at the same time receive income for life. Please join Jean and me, and the many other Heritage Society members who have created a Cleveland Orchestra Gift Annuity."
