Donn Trethewey grew up in a home filled with classical music. And music from Chuck Berry and Little Richard, Buddy Holly, and Elvis what’s-his-name. All kinds of music. Still, it all still makes perfect sense. Bartok, Berry, The Beach Boys, and Beethoven, and Gavin Bryars . . they all work together. It was easy to hum parts of Copland’s Appalachian Spring while riding a loud scooter down Sunset Boulevard on a balmy night in LA back in the day. Or to hum in one’s head Johnny B. Goode during a Lutheran Church sermon. It’s all relative. Music simply is. It simply IS.

So, tune in to Music From that Cardboard Box on Mondays from 8 to 9:30am. You’ll hear lots of music and little of me. As it should be…

In a former life, he worked on cars and rode loud motorcycles.
