    Thanks. I am enjoying it now.
    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.

    Brenda, I tried to get the traditional, but the classical keeps coming up. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Lucy

    Hi Luce...it's just one station. You'll hear many old traditional songs in addition to classical---but not standards like Bing Crosby singing White Christmas. That would be nice also, wouldn't it, maybe on another station.?

    I tried to bring it up and the site came up but no music and Christmas music is my favorite. Do I need to do something else when the link comes up?
