Nicely done

This is a nicely done “on this day in classical music history” type of program. Although episodes are quite short (only a few minutes long) it helps to learn more about your favorite composers and be introduced to new names too. Bravo!

Entertaining & informative

I thoroughly enjoy the variety of the
music and the information bits. I save the reviews for a week or so and listen several times on my daily walk.
