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 – 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.
This week’s Programme – First broadcast this coming Saturday on Channel 292 – starts with a nocturne by the composer credited with inventing the form – John Field. Then three of John Betjeman’s poems set to music and sung, some of a violin sonata by Franz von Biber – revolutionary for its time (the 17th century). Next – some Bartok – Rhapsody for Violin and Orchestra, followed by part of a string quartet by Aaron Copland Three pieces finish off the hour – a traditional Georgian Chorale, Some Telemann, and an arrangement of La Folia by Vivaldi.
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.
