Brotherly love: Siblings demonstrate devotion to music, APSU and their parents with special endowment

April 16, 2002

Austin Peay employees and brothers, Tom Moseley, coordinator of distance education and off-campus programs, and John Moseley, assistant professor, communication and theatre, have established a gift that will benefit Austin Peay students, faculty and staff, as well as other WAPX listeners.

Through a special endowment established with the University, they will make payments to WFMT, "The Fine Arts Network," in Chicago that permits the University to rebroadcast WFMT programming on the campus radio station, WAPX.

The endowment is in honor of their parents, Grace and Gene Moseley. "Tom and I grew up in a household where classical music was the dominant music," John Moseley says. "My father and mother would spend hours listening to the great works and orchestras from virtually any available source. And my father was fond of recording live performances broadcast over radio and television."

Thanks to the Moseley brothers' gift, WAPX listeners will have the opportunity to experience the same musical pleasures. The Fine Arts Network is a major producer and supplier of classical music recordings, and its broadcasts span a wide range of musical genres: orchestral, opera, chamber music and solo recitals by renowned artists from around the world.

Its programming includes offerings as diverse as "Deutche Welle," "le grand tour" and "River City Folk."

WFMT programs air weekly on the WAPX-FM, "the Voice of Austin Peay." Programs can be heard through an audio cablecast on Cable 99.
