Pan Cogito Awoken At 2 AM On Saturday Morning By Neighbour Calling To Report Performance On WETA-FM Of Elliott Carter's 'Elegy'

On Saturday, August 4, 2007, at 1:40 AM, WETA-FM broadcast Elliott Carter's 'Elegy', from 1943. Mr Carter is a distinguished 98 year old American classical composer.

On Sunday, August 5, 2007, at about 3:00 AM, WETA-FM broadcast a beautiful, early piece by American composer Alan Hovhaness. Mr Hovhaness was a distinguished Armenian-American tonal composer whose work was last heard on WETA-FM in late January 2007, before the WGMS/WETA merger was fully consummated and Jim Allison, formerly of WGMS, was given near total classical programming control of WETA/WGMS.
