Ghost Radio: Playing to an audience of one?

Adding mikes to the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in 2001

 I have found my own personal classical music station. 

RNW announced that it was closing the RNW Classical channel at the end of May 2012. But it is July 28th and it is still there...playing nonstop classical music into cyberspace. Jackie Spears is presenting it here. It's the station they forgot to switch off. The promos for other programmes in 10 languages is rather eery, as most have now gone away. But it's a rather pleasant selection while it lasts. I guess someone will simply yank it off the air, so don't expect a formal closedown.
