Dear Friends at WQXR,

I have been listening to WQXR since 1946, when I was 8 years old, and have loved the station ever since.

I regret that I missed the vintage WQXR show(s).
Often I have wished for a chance to hear shows from the past, such as Listening with Jacqes Fray (sp?)

Gala Performance and Summer concerts from Tanglewood.

During the Summer of 1964, I heard a preformance of Schubert's 9th Symphony, performed at Tanglewood by the Boston Syphony Orch. conducted by Joseph Krips in a thrilling
rendition.

There was a song, on Gala Performance back in the mid Fifties. I don't even know the name, but the melody has been in me ever since.

Might it be possible to play the Schubert, Might it be possible to look through your archives and the listings of Perfomance to find that wonderful song. The fact is, that when I heard it, I had the impression that they gave the composer as Norodam of Cambodia.
I checked Groves, and seached online, and there was a composer named Norodam of Cambodia.

I love the station, had a great time at the Green Space seeing A Christmas Carol, and had the added pleasure of meeting both Mimet and Naomi Lewin.

Best Wishes to you all, for Wonderful Holidays, and a good New Year!!

Steve
