The music is wonderful but your web site is frustrating. It often doesn't show what's on the air at the time it's playing. Right now it shows that a cantata is playing and there's actually a concerto on. There's no way to see what is scheduled. Unfortunately I can't listen 24 hours a day so it would be nice to know what's coming up. As for your mobile app, it's truly awful. I have an android tablet and when I can hear WQXR there is a long delay compared to what's on the radio. Most of the time it won't even play no matter what I do. A big disappointment. I'm a contributor but I feel short changed with these problems.

Can someone please tell me what is the logical reason not to list in plain English the title of the music playing? I don't speak German and I find it particularly annoying to have to try to put meaning to the title of a German piece or an opera. Since I have been going to the opera, the philharmonic and listening to classical music for quite some time, this expression of elitism on the part of you people does not represent a problem for me but what about the uninitiated? isn't it a pierre d'achoppement for them and therefore serve only as a discouraging element in thier evolution.
I hope that you people will come down from your pedestal and try to educate and attract, rather than repel potential lovers of classical and opera.

Bach 360 is a fantastic program
