Wednesday, July 7

Wrapping up this week's tenth anniversary requests bash, today's Midday Music answers pressing, pent-up listener demand for Chopin, Reznicek, Dvorak, Grieg and more. Thanks to all who communicated your musical wishes and other well wishes. It's been an honor and a pleasure to bring you great music for lo these ten years of hosting the midday show at GPB. Onward!

Speaking of hosting, from July 8 to July 16 I'll be away and Midday Music will come to you from GPB's Savannah station WSVH, hosted by my excellent colleagues Eric Nauert and Russell Wells. Their playlists, as always, live here:
