Midday Music, Wednesday 2/11/09

To catch up for a moment: GPB Radio's short, sweet Winter Membership Campaign took place February 6-9, Friday through Monday, and thanks to you we reached the member goals for our music shows - and our overall goals as well! Thank you for your generous response.

Midday Music for Friday the 6th and Tuesday the 10th, were programmed by my colleagues at WSVH Savannah. See those playlists here. If you have questions about anything you heard Monday the 9th (or anything else!) please write middaymusic@gpb.org.
