Dear Friend of Millennium Music:
In the next weeks you may notice a change in the availability of our program on your local public radio station.
Our longtime distributor chose to send out a notice that it will no longer carry our program after June 30. At the same time they neglected to tell the station management at our various radio affiliates that Millennium of Music will indeed continue to be broadcast. We will be broadcast directly through PRX (the Public Radio Exchange). The show will be available to local stations free of charge 52 weeks per year.
Some of you will notice no difference - many public radio stations already have told us that they will continue to feature the show. We may even pick up some new stations.
Other stations have been quiet, and we know that our distributor is trying to pitch other programming to them. Please watch and listen for the show on your local public radio station.
If the show is dropped on the station on which you listen, we hope you will reach out to the station and make clear that you want Millennium of Music to continue.
On Easter, we entered into our 40th season with Millennium; you, our profound and loyal audience, have made this possible.
We can only express our appreciation for your support, and the many stations who have carried us over the years who honor and value our unique and diverse breadth of programming.
There will be a new recording we will highlight on the site in a few weeks (with another one of those “cut-a-day” offerings to our expanding mailing list).
For now, I am asking only that if you find we are gone locally, I hope you will miss us enough to write or call your local station.
You can receive the broadcast by subscription even if your local station does not carry the show. If all else fails, I hope you will come back to this site and subscribe.
