Agree!!! Why not simply show the actual piece of music in the upper right hand corner? Who wants to study lists? (Why do web sites have the tendency to get worse over time?)

ditto the previous comments. The old website clearly noted what was playing in the upper right corner of the page. I see that at 8:32 a clarinet trio in A minor played; but can't see anything else. Glad to know that at 11 pm exploring music talks to? is hosted by John Corigliano.

Indeed, where is Elijah?

A coherent site remains beyond the ken of this station.

I am exhausted from listing the instances of ineptness which often require us to hop around to see what's playing.

I am hear for just a short visit tonight and am returning to BBC 3. For variety, depth, and coherence, it has no match.

So where is Mendelssohn's Elijah, which this website says is on the program for this week's NY Philharmonic, but that's NOT the program that's actually playing on the air starting at 9:00 pm Feb 9, 2012!!

How bizarre!
