Dear Bill,

"Exploring Music" is a wonderful part of my day on KWAX-FM. There have been more terrific programs, and entire weeks, than I can possibly remember and acknowledge. I'm very much enjoying the current one on Latin Carnival — some of my favorite music in the world.

I'd like to (strongly!) suggest a week's programs on an excellent, very interesting, and much overlooked composer: Bohuslav Martinu. He always seems to be on the periphery of knownness, and yet seems always close by. I'm sure that I and many others would enjoy such a program — especially coming from yourself.

Thank you for your dedication to radio, the music, and of course the fun and enlightening conversation.
