Elaine Edelman from Manhattan: York at 86

To stay with music (having been devotee of NYC at night), I'm fixed at QXR's dial (to keep getting the dicey signal). How can we have "New Sounds" back on "our" new station? (I'm not a podcast person nor "streamer"; just FM dial, please.) A re-broadcast on QXR at night? Thanks.
