In celebration of the 450th anniversary of the birth of William Shakespeare, WDAV presents a week-long festival of classical selections inspired by Shakespeare's works. All week, tune into WDAV to hear Shakespeare-themed musical selections played throughout the day.

The celebration culminates with a live broadcast of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice presented by Davidson College's Radio Shakespeare class.
