OK; I have to ask: is Sharon Isbin WQXR's house guitarist? Speaking at least anecdotally, she seems to be played far more often than her runner-up, who seems to be John Williams. I also love this piece ("Concierto de Aranjuez), which I first heard in a great older recording featuring Julian Bream. I never hear that recording on this station, but others besides Ms Isbin have recorded it, believe it or not! I know I'm exaggerating to some extent, and I know that Sharon Isbin is good, but she is the most often played guitarist on this station. Give others a chance!
