One Response to “Playlists for March 4-8: Mendelssohn”

  1. Mark Sherkow says:

    What happened to what was supposed to be played March 8 on Exploring Music? Instead of the last program about Mendelssohn, we got the program that was supposed to be aired next Friday! I tuned in late so maybe an announcement was made? I have been enjoying the Mendelssohn programs very much and am quite disappointed that you were not able to play the correct program. When can I hear the correct program?
