Oliver Camacho is a Monteverdi-Schubert tenor and historically informed podcaster who has miraculously evaded being canceled since 2006. Until 2020, he hustled for singing gigs that required a facile glottis and the occasional stage directing job for companies that had no budget for sets or lights. Oliver credits his passion for music to his Chicago Public Schools education, and his disastrous personal finances to the Bienen School of Music, Northwestern University (including the Bank One agents who handed him a credit card application at freshman orientation).
Some of his most polarizing work was done for OperaNow! Podcast. OBS is deciding if it is finally time to cancel him once and for all. As of this writing, Oliver is still a presenter on Classical WFMT in Chicago. As producer/host of the program Listening to Singers, he leverages his position to score interviews with esteemed guests who would never sink to be interviewed by a podcaster.
