Changes to GCR3 Classical Programming

Recently, we were informed in writing by Tony Currie of Radio Six International iin Scotland that his long running Classical music series, Nothing But the Best, has come to an end. This is due to the fact that his wife is in poor health at this time, and Tony is her sole caregiver. While we are sorry to lose this outstanding radio series, which we've carried for many years, we can certainly understand the circumstances. Tony plans to continue producing his weekly show of pop instrumentals, The Lively Lounge, which airs over on GCR2 early Monday mornings.

In place of Nothing But the Best, GCR3 is pleased to welcome to its diverse Classical lineup Classical Music for Everyone. This weekly series originates at community radio station KYAQ in Toledo, Oregon. Each week, host Gib Bernhardt presents a wide variety of Classical music, and occasionally features interviews and in-studio performances with Classical musicians. Our thanks to Gib and KYAQ for graciously making this series available to GCR. We are the first outlet to offer the program outside of KYAQ, and we hope everyone will enjoy the new show.

Additionally, GCR has brought back to its schedule Center Stage From Wolf Trap. This series has returned for another season of great live performances from Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia. Center Stage From Wolf Trap airs Fridays at 8 AM Eastern through the remainder of the year.

As always, thank you for listening to GCR3: Your Connection to the Arts.
