It's a joy to wake up Western New York with all you need to launch into your morning routine every weekday, starting with birdsong at 6:00am.  There’s classical music from the WXXI library, the latest NPR News, a new dimension from the Composer’s Datebook at 7:20 a.m., and a daily poem from Garrison Keillor on the Writer’s Almanac at 8:20 a.m.  If you wake up early enough, you can test yourself on the daily mystery piece at 6:40.  This week, you’ll hear the influence of birds flying through composers’ works.
