Just happened to look through your playlist and noticed that once again, a Bruckner symphony (#6 this time) gets relegated to the 1 AM time slot, but it seems that you can play yet another Bach piece even though we've just had 10 days of non-stop Bach. You really need to get a little more balance into your playlists.

Again Bach, two times today? I cannot express the nausea that it gives me the POOR selections and taste of WQXR programmers. Why not other baroque composers such as Vivaldi, Frescobaldi or Charpetier? Is WQXR a specialist in German Bach now? It reminds me of Nazis playing Wagner all the time in concentration camps to EDUCATE those ignorant Jews in great German music. Mr. Forrest, why do not you play Jewsih music every day and several times each day like German Bach? Are you also am anti-Semitic German?
EXCESSES are not good for anybody including German Bach.
