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 – please send a small contribution to help Encore keep going.
THE DONATION BUTTON AND ‘BUY ME A COFFEE’ BUTTON are on the homepage of the website – www.tumbril.co.uk – which folks can use if they would like to support Encore.
(Please don’t be put off by the POWR security wall when using the PAYPAL button – it is a harmless requirement of WIX the website hosting service.)
Covid has put me out of action this week. So last week’s programme is being repeated:
THIS WEEK’S PROGRAMME – (First broadcast this coming FRIDAY by WRMI at 0200 UTC on 5850, and then Channel 292 on SATURDAY at 11:00 UTC on 6070 and 9670 kHz):Starts with part of a Mozart piano concerto arranged for chamber ensemble, a couple of pieces by contemporary US composer Terry Riley, and A Drop in the Ocean from Eriks Esenvalds – contemporary Latvian Composer.After that, three songs by Ivor Cutler sung at the pedal driven harmonium, and some of Romeo and Juliette by Berloiz.The programme finishes with a song from La Bohème by Puccini.
