    Hi Raymond,

    I can’t find an email address to contact you, so I’m posting a comment instead.

    Your Classical Music Spotlight podcast is wonderful. Thank you for spending the time to put this together. I’ve been listening to it for a year or more? (can’t remember exactly).

    There is a tradition of “music educator/broadcasters” who make classical music interesting. I think of Karl Haas (?) from the USA who we heard in Australia on ABC radio for many years. In Australia we had John Cargher whose program “Singers of Renown” was broadcast weekly for 40 years.

    Your podcast continues that tradition.

    Attempting to buy music in a CD shop is such an unsatisfying experience — I usually walk out empty handed. One needs to be introduced to music and the Naxos podcast does that very well.

    Regards,
