What do you think? With the OTA adapter, I can watch Create, World and PBS Kids Channel on DISH.
Yet another questionable programming decision from WMHT! We love watching your Saturday lineup of cooking shows, beginning with the creative, enchanting Simply Ming. Imagine our horror this morning to find the completely inferior, hypocritical Christina Cooks taking Ming's place. It's been a rough week, so we really needed to share 30 minutes with dear Ming. Christina has the personality of a dead fish, while offering outdated cooking advice in a graceless manner. Relying upon soy products for protein creates problems for many of us, who find it hard to digest soy, especially the GMO soy we find all too often in America. Likewise, for all Christina preached about the dangers of sugar, most of her product line is based upon brown rice syrup, which is 100% glucose, and agave, which also raises blood sugar. Her recipes look bland and ridiculously carb heavy. A dish with pasta and potatoes????? In what universe is that remotely healthy for anyone? What Christina knows about nutrition, you could stick on the head of a pin and have room left. Our household will not watch this horrendous, faux "cooking" show. Ming has lots of seasons; please restore his show to your lineup.
Just rejoined after decades of living away; all my life I've not found a classical radio station that even comes close to WMHT
A question! Yesterday 11/24/20 some where during the day --someone played a song by James Brown - the song was called SUPERBAD = it was a slowed down version kinda bluesy sung by a woman. Anyone have access to the playlist. It was on albany 90.3 fm. It may have been played during a show or in between a break. I was driving so couldn't stop to wait to see if it would be anounced. If some one knows or can lead me in a direction to find this artist, that would be great. Thanks Jim Carney
Is WMHT going to air Josh Groban's special in support of his new album, Harmony? It seems to be slated to start airing 11/28.
When is Last Tango in Halifax returning?
My 10 yr old is requesting you play The Entertainer by Copland on your Classical Channel. His name is Vincent 🙂
Hello, I was shocked to hear that WMHT is not including Steve Greenfield of the Green Party of NYS in the candidates debate on Thursday. What is happening to democracy? Don’t we want to hear MORE voices of different perspectives, have MORE choices, dig our politics out of the deep hole it is in? I cannot imagine what possible reason you have for not including ALL candidates in this debate. I attended the congressional debate some years ago, and Steve Greenfield was intelligent, civil and brought issues that no other candidate brought up. He would be an insightful addition to your debate. Please include him this Thursday. Sincerely, Deyva Arthur Troy, New York
Any idea when the Peter, Paul & Mary CD's will be delivered? I've been waiting since May.
In case you need a socially-distanced home project, but want to get some great classical listening for your efforts, look at this idea:
What happened to Lawrence Welk?
