This weekend Encore – Classical Music on Radio Tumbril begins broadcasting on a third transmitter.
The folks at WWCR in Tennessee are transmitting the show for the first time at 01:00 UTC Sunday 17th (Saturday evening 16th local in US) 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 17th November.
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 01:00 UTC Monday 18th November.
There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 22nd November at 19:00 UTC.
This week’s programme starts with a Boccherini quintet. Then a motet by William Byrd – his Ave Verum Corpus. Brahms Hungarian Dance No. 1, a string quartet by Jancek, some Grieg, Britten and a movement from Beethoven’s Pastoral symphony follow on. A song by Purcell, A sonata for flute and harp and a movement from Mozart’s piano concerto No. 21 finish the hour.
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.
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.
