Encore -Classical Music, weekend schedule

This weekend Encore - Classical Music on Radio Tumbril will start broadcasting at a NEW TIME in Europe. We have moved the 15:00 UTC Sunday transmission on 6070 kHz to 11:00 UTC on SATURDAY on 6070 kHz with Channel 292. There should be much less interference from adjacent channels at this time. For now - the repeat will continue to be on Friday evenings at 19:00 UTC as usual.

WWCR will broadcast the Encore on Saturday at 21:00 UTC as usual on 9350 kHz. The propagation is very good over the US and much of Canada and the signal carries to parts of western Europe too. (we had a reception report from West Bengal in India last week as well.)

WBCQ send out the show on 7490 kHz at 01:00 UTC Monday to the United States.

Do let us know how well you can pick up Encore at your location by emailing to We try to reply to all emails and will send eQSL cards for full reports - though a brief report is fine.

This week's program starts with some solo cello by Bach and part of the Beethoven violin concerto. After that we will have come contemporary pieces by Thomas Ad├ęs and Jennifer Higdon followed by some Smetena and a romance by Haydn.

The program finishes with First Snow by Mansell and some Mozart.  I hope you enjoy it. The playlist is on the website  - along with an email link and comments page.

Both Channel 292 and WBCQ as well as WWCR can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their sites with a google search.

In the meantime - thank you for spreading the word about Encore - Classical Music on Shortwave. And thank you to everyone for letting us know how well the signal is received where you live.
