Wednesday, June 30

Two quick announcements before today's playlist:

1. Today is the end of GPB's fiscal year. If you have not yet joined GPB as a member or renewed your membership lately, please do your part to support your local public radio station today, at or 800-222-4788. Thank you!

2. The beginning of July marks my tenth anniversary as host of GPB's midday classical program. I'd like to celebrate by playing requests - music you particularly want to hear. Please email me ( your name and town and what piece you're requesting. Go ahead and deluge me with and I'll see how many I can fit in at the beginning of next week. Thanks! - Sarah
