After taking (and enjoying!) a summer hiatus, I have decided to change my programming approach and will reduce the number of posts and montages, at least fir the foreseeable future.
Don't expect more than one new podcast every month.
I will cut back on my Tuesday blogging.
I wull, however, make an effort to make sure all of my posts are found on ITYWLTMT - even the PTB and OTF posts, though I will publish them there firt, a lot like I do on my French blog.
This month we will mark the 80th anniversary of the World Premiere of Gershwin's Folk Opera Porgy and Bess with a number of related posts.
- September 1st - Our Podcast Vault Selection of the Month brings back a 2012 montage dedicated to th emusic of George Gershwin. This podcast will be available on our Pod-O-Matic Channel until September 30. http://itywltmt.blogspot.com/2015/09/by-george.html
