As always, any new listeners who support the program at any level get a copy of this lovely CD (or others from our list); this also includes current members who upgrade to a higher level, or wish to give Millennium listenership as a gift.
Our free show takes us back 12 years to another wonderful lute performer, Hopkinson Smith.
This season, our series from Switzerland will look at Swiss performers and their influence--this week, one of the brightest pupils of the legendary Swiss lutenist Eugen Dombois, Hopkinson Smith.
Finally, we have the actual list of stations where you can find us. We have gained some, and lost a few (if your local station dropped us, remember to write your program director!). Thank you all once again for your great spirit and support.
