Encore-Classical Music on Radio Tumbril, weekend schedule update

This coming weekend Encore - Classical Music on Radio Tumbril will be broadcasting on a new and even better frequency via WWCR in Tennessee.* *Saturday 14th December 21:00 UTC 9350 kHz - this is the afternoon in US and Canada and the signal should carry to western Europe too.* This replaces the 01:00 Broadcast by WWCR on 6115 kHz.

Encore - Classical Music this weekend is - of course - being broadcast as usual by Channel 292 (Europe) on 6070 kHz at 15:00 UTC Sunday 15th December.
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 01:00 UTC Monday 16th December.

There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 20th December at 19:00 UTC.

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.

*This week's programme *starts with a Mozart piano trio, then a couple of absorbing contemporary works, followed by two songs about the cold from Schubert. Vaughan Williams next with The Banks of Green Willow. The second half of the show has some Rossini, Jennifer Higdon, Malcolm Arnold and finishes with O Let me Weep from Purcell's The Fairy Queen.
Tune in if you can.

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.

*Help needed at Channel 292 in Germany.* 292 is struggling financially.
They are renting out airtime to the Overcomer Ministry to try and bring in funds. Revenue is dependent on feedback - please help them by sending a simple reception report to:       mail

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.
