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.
I need some help with the costs or Encore will have to stop.
There is a PayPal donation button now on the homepage of the website - - 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.

Big thanks to the folks who have donated already - It's enough to keep going for another 5-6 weeks.

This week's Programme - First broadcast this coming Saturday by Channel 292 - starts with some ballet music from Poulenc, some incidental music from Fauré, and a modern hymn to the Titanic by Gavin Bryars.
After that - the theme from Paul Hindemith's The Four Temperaments, some more Gavin Bryars, and a sonata for recorder and basso continuo composed by eighteenth century Neapolitan Francesco Mancini.
The last section of the programme has two modern pieces by contemporary acoustic ensembles and finishes with part of Schubert's String Quartet No. 13.

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.
