If you can - send a small contribution to help Encore keep going.
There is a PayPal donation button 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.
Thank you.
 
A big thanks to the folks who have donated already.
This week's Programme - First broadcast this coming Saturday on Channel 292 - starts with See, Amid the Winter's Snow sung by Kate Rusby, a sonata for two violins from Mieczyslaw Weinberg, and part of Symphony No. 4 by Tchaikovsky.
After that some motets by Poulenc, a piano quintet from Robert Schumann and Fingal's Cave by Mendelssohn.
The programme finishes with the Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp by Debussy.
 
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.
A very good site for online SDR receivers all over the world is: http://kiwisdr.com/public/  Click the 'Map' button in the top left of the screen.
