People of Northwest Public Radio
Oregon native Robin Rilette came to work for NWPR in 1989 as a graduate from Portland State University, where she began her radio career as a volunteer for Oregon Public Broadcasting. Three years after her arrival here she became the station’s Music Director.
Robin hosts Classical Music with Robin Rilette from 9:00 to noon as well as concerts around the Northwest five or six times a year. Meeting listeners and helping to support the more than 20 symphonies in the Northwest is one of the favorite parts of her job.
Robin does not own a computer. She is not a Luddite–rather, she’s a lover of travel and that love keeps getting in the way. She has been trying to save up for a computer for some time now, but whenever she gets close, an opportunity to travel seems to come up and there goes the piggy bank. Until the next trip, she hikes with her canine buddy, reads voraciously, takes in a movie now and then and creates more garden beds than she can possibly manage.
Join Northwest Public Radio's own classical music expert Robin Rilette for a morning of music, after Morning Edition ends on the Classical Music service. Robin brings you thoughts and insights on the music you hear, and loves to hear from her listeners. Check back on the Music section of this site for periodic updates from Robin, and join the community of listeners to discuss the day's music.
