|P. D. Q. Bach chronology|
WTWP Classical Talkity-Talk Radio was released in 1991 by Telarc Records. The album contains the "last hour of the broadcast from station WTWP in Hoople on May 5, 1991, the 184th anniversary of the death of P. D. Q. Bach." The station name WTWP means "Wall to Wall Pachelbel" in which some unusual instruments play his Canon in D.
P.D.Q. Bach had become an accepted part of the classical radio market; the right touch of comedy enlivened programming. Listeners to WTWP Classical Talkity-Talk Radio found was a not-so-subtle parody of the newer "pop" programming style of several classical music stations. In particular, the Pachelbel Canon in D was overplayed, and traditional listeners resented this abuse of the music.
At some point, radio station management recognized WTWP Classical Talkity-Talk Radio cut too close to home, an embarrassment to their own programming. Soon P.D.Q. Bach became persona non qrata on classical radio stations; Professor Schickele was doing too good a job.
