You can help keep Encore on the air:
Encore is a one-man operation. WRMI and Channel 292 are very generous with their air-time but Encore still costs around 200 Dollars/Euros a month to broadcast.
If you can – send a small contribution to help Encore keep going.
There is a PayPal donation button now on the homepage of the website – http://www.tumbril.co.uk – which folks can use if they want to. If PayPal is no good for you then send me an email and we’ll sort something else out.
(This bulletin is sent by Bcc to the many hundreds of listeners who have been in contact with Encore over the last two and a half years of broadcasting Encore.)
A big thanks to the folks who have donated already – It’s enough to keep Encore going for another few weeks.
This week’s Programme – First broadcast this coming Saturday on Channel 292 – starts with the Pizzicati by Delibes from his ballet Sylvia. After that we’ll have a clarinet and piano sonata from Jean Françaix, Rondes de Printemps by Debussy, and a couple of sacred motets composed by Anton Bruckner.
A modern piece next – A vision of the Sea by David Matthews, followed by some Boccherini with castanets, and the Serenade in E Flat by Joseph Suk.
Channel 292 can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their site with a google search.
