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 gavotte from Rameau, some carnival music from the opera Notre Dame by Fanz Schmidt, a Telemann quartet, and some contemporary music from the prolific British composer Charlotte Bray. After that, three songs by Schubert, two movements from Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, and – to finish the programme – a nocturne by Chopin.
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
