Robert Joseph Farnon (July 24, 1917 – April 23, 2005) was a Canadian-born composer, conductor, musical arranger and trumpet player. As well as being a famous composer of original works (often in the light music genre, but also for film and television), he was recognized as one of the finest arrangers of his generation. In later life he composed a number of more serious orchestral works, including three symphonies, and was recognized with four Ivor Novello awards and the Order of Canada.

Previously called WDVR (Delaware Valley Radio) the station pioneered the Beautiful Music format beginning in 1963.
Original staff included Rich Franklin and Dave Shayer, both broadcast veterans, ( and now associates of BEAUTIFULinstrumentals.com). They were two of the original air staff hired when the station first went on the air May 13, 1963. Both, later, were Music Directors at 101.1 FM, and are still active in broadcasting today. Also part of the first air staff were Lou Klawansky (air name: Lee Kramer), Frank Goshy (air name: Frank Edwards), and Joaquin Bowman. Working with Jerry Lee (Now Owner), Marlin Taylor (Bonneville Broadcast Syndicator and Surrey House Music now PD sirius radio) , Phil Stout (later Programmer of SRP), the late Dave Kurtz (Owner), Alan Campbell (BEAUTIFULinstrumentals.com chief editor and programmer) and others, WDVR skyrocketed to phenomenal success and became a broadcasting legend. 101.1 FM was, and is, one of the most successful independent FM stations in the country.

Americans for the Arts Action Fund is in the final stages of preparing to welcome more than 500 arts advocates to Capitol Hill. Now here’s where we need your help.
Even though you cannot attend in person, you can help your state arts advocacy delegation members who are coming to DC. We need you to write to your Members of Congress by this Friday, April 5th at noon. We are going to tally all of these letters so that your state arts advocacy captain can walk in each Congressional office and say, “Today is Arts Advocacy Day and I want to add my voice to the number of other constituents who have already e-mailed you about the importance of the arts and arts education in our state.”
Take two minutes to send a pre-written, customizable Arts Advocacy Day letter to your members of Congress.
