Paul Thoma­son has writ­ten scripts for the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Opera’s Sat­ur­day after­noon radio broad­casts, for the Joseph Volpe Gala (tele­vi­sion and radio), and the broad­cast of the Met’s National Coun­cil Grand Finals Con­certs. With the advent of the Met’s 24/7 satel­lite radio chan­nel on Sirius-XM, Paul has writ­ten scores of scripts for the re-airing of his­toric Sat­ur­day after­noon broad­casts begin­ning with per­for­mances orig­i­nally heard in the 1930s up to the present day.

In addi­tion Paul has writ­ten, pro­duced and nar­rated a vari­ety of pro­grams about opera both in New York (for radio sta­tions WBAI and WNYC) and in San Fran­cisco. He was a reg­u­lar guest host for “Sat­ur­day Night at the Opera” for KDFC-FM in San Fran­cisco. This involved writ­ing the script, select­ing the music and nar­rat­ing pro­grams cel­e­brat­ing the artistry of indi­vid­ual singers, as well as pro­grams with a com­mon theme (such as “Oper­atic Mete­ors,” “Demented,” “Great Rossini Singing,”  “An Oper­atic Christmas”).

He has appeared as a pan­elist on the Met Opera’s pop­u­lar Inter­mis­sion Quiz and the Record Col­lec­tors Round­table. Paul has also writ­ten, selected the music for, and nar­rated sev­eral inter­mis­sion fea­tures for the Met broad­casts, includ­ing trib­utes to singers Franco Corelli, Renata Tebaldi and Anna Moffo.

Happy listening![/su_column]
