@Laura,

Fear not, we are not discontinuing Pipedreams, it was this week preempted to accommodate both Mad About Music and Song of America.

Where was Pipedreams tonight? I look forward to that program weekly and was deeply disappointed not to hear it tonight. Please do not discontiune this very interesting and enriching program - I have enjoyed it for years and anticipate its continuation.
