September 11, 2001

In the days and weeks following the events of September 11, PT requested that its listeners and visitors to our Web site send us titles of music they turned to for solace.

Several people sent in selections that coincided with music chosen by producers for the show; others offered pieces that were suprisingly new, bringing a fresh perspective on the emotion and meaning brought out by our favorite compositions.

Still more wrote in just to thank us for the music and commentary being programmed. As we approach the date again this year, we've collected their often moving messages, their suggestions for music from all genres, some of the music itself, and commentary from our shows.
