    Many evenings, at 6:59, the "announcer" does NOT announce either the title or composer of the last piece played before 7 PM. When this practice stops, I will start to contribute to the station, which I have been listening to for 70 years. Yours in music, Dave Obelkevich

    As a New York transplant to the coast of Maine, I feel remembered and embraced by the music and voices of WQXR. Barrie Pribyl
