Doesn't seem to be a very popular channel...:worried:

Oh well, I did my WTD to this channel. I must say, it's great music to relax to. Nothing better then to hear a woman sing like an angel, and you'll get a lot of that on this channel...:)

The DJ's do a great job. I don't think the DJ's have to do much work. One piece of work I listened to last for over an hour...:shock:

4 out of 5 Stars...:cool:

I can handle the choral singing... that I kinda liked. I'm not as big a fan of the rest of the opera singing however. Next time I return to Met Opera Radio will be the next time we cover it in a future edition of WTD. :cool:

I am glad they offer this channel though, it's something you probably won't get on most FM markets.
