Monday, May 3

Thank you so much for your support during GPB Radio's spring membership campaign. The drive wrapped up successfully on April 23 thanks to the generosity of listeners like you. It's never too late to contribute, if you meant to: is the place to support the programs you value on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Thanks also to Eric Nauert and Russell Wells for hosting Midday Music last week (playlists here). Glad to be back with you now. Here's today's playlist, featuring Gil Shaham's new recording of the Mendelssohn Octet. - Sarah
