In 1978, Chris started hosting classical music radio shows on KVOD and had hosted classical shows for over 40 years. In 1979 he published his most successful work, the rock musical Ducktails, and Bobbysox. His album, August Light (including his Wedding Cantata), came out in 1987. He conducted parts of his opera with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra in 1991. His two-CD set "The Classical Music Start-Up Kit" was released on Naxos in 1994 and sold over 150,000 copies. His opera, From the Realm of the Shadow, was released on Naxos Records in 2001 and received a workshop production in New York with CTC.
