Ross Amico has been involved in radio broadcasting for 29 years (19 of those professionally). He has always been passionate about classical music and recordings, which he has collected since the age of 10. His pre-produced shows, "Picture Perfect" and "The Lost Chord," allow him to explore the world of film music and seldom-heard composers and recordings. His music articles, which appear every Friday in the Times of Trenton, celebrate the local and regional arts scene. Interview subjects have included Stephanie Blythe, Barry Douglas, JoAnn Falletta, Leon Fleisher, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Marc-André Hamelin, Lara St. John, Peter Schickele, Chris Thile, and Christopher Walken. WWFM, for which Amico hosts, is New Jersey's only full-time classical music station, serving New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and portions of Delaware and Maryland. Its signal can be heard via HD in New York City and Philadelphia, via satellite in Steamboat Springs, CO, and via the internet worldwide.
