    To Bill Mclaughlin This is Thursday evening, and I just finished
    listening to Invitation to the Dance. What a delightful program!!
    Your programing is just outstanding, and I have learned so much important musical information listening to Exploring Music. As a
    member of the Fine Arts Circle it is a privilege to know that WFMT
    supports quality classical music education. Continue presenting
    these excellent programs as 7:00pm to8:00pm is my favorite listening time of the day.
    Many Thanks,
    Jane Colman
