KDB-93.7/FM Radio: UCSB Celebrates the Golden Age of Opera (1850’s-1920)

The late Union Oil executive William Moran was also an extreme opera enthusiast, and during his teen years of the 1930’s he began a lifelong passion of collecting recordings and memorabilia from the time period known as the golden age of opera. Housed permanently in UCSB’s Special Collections department in Davidson Library, it’s one of the world’s largest such collections, and a small portion will be on display there until September 7th.

David Seubert, Acting Head of Special Collections, recently spoke with KDB-93.7/FM about the current exhibition in Special Collections--"Stars of the Opera Stage: ‘Golden Age' Images from the William R. Moran Collection."  You can still hear the interview on air Thursday at 5:03pm, or listen to it online.
