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 me around 200 Dollars/Euros a month to broadcast.
I'm happy to go on giving my time and such expertise as I have to the project of broadcasting classical music on Shortwave - it's a passion - but 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 - 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.
(This bulletin is sent by Bcc to the many hundreds of listeners who have been in contact with Encore over the last two and a half years of broadcasting Encore.)

This week's Programme - First broadcast this coming Saturday by Channel 292 - starts with some Sibelius, then a piece by Rameau, followed by something contemporary - part of UFO by Michael Daugherty.
Haydn next - Allegro con Brio from his Symphony 44, after which we will hear some monastic music from 12th century France. Part of a modern Quartet piece follows on, then some Ravel, a Schubert duet, and finally Celestial Fantasy by Alan Hovhaness.
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.
