This coming weekend Encore – Classical Music on Radio Tumbril will be broadcasting on a third frequency again:
The folks at WWCR in Tennessee are transmitting the show for the fourth week running at 01:00 UTC Sunday 8th (Saturday evening 7th local in US) on 6115 kHz.
However – next weekend Saturday 14th December we will change frequency and time to 9350 kHz at 21:00 UTC from WWCR
This change is in order to further improve reception in the US and Canada still further and move Encore to Saturday afternoon (local) in the US.
Reception should also be possible in the western half of Europe.
Encore – Classical Music this weekend is – of course – being broadcast as usual by Channel 292 (Europe) on 6070 kHz at 15:00 UTC Sunday 8th December.
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 01:00 UTC Monday 9th December.
There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 13th December at 19:00 UTC.
Do let us know how well you can pick up Encore at your location by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. We try to reply to all emails and will send eQSL cards for full reports.
This week’s programme starts with a late string quartet by Mozart and is followed by an arrangement of a traditional Irish tune by Percy Grainger. The overture and an aria from Händel’s Orlando next, then the 4th movement from Schubert’s Trout Quintet. A field recording, a large chunk of Copland’s Appalachian Spring, some Rimsky-Korsakov and a clarinet sonata make up the rest of 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.
