Series Description

A Note To You continues to educate, amuse and delight as it has for more than three decades.

Produced in conjunction with Northeastern University, A Note To You has earned national and international recognition from such prestigious juries as the New York International Festivals, The Ohio State Awards, and the Armstrong Awards. A Note To You is distributed nationally by WGBH Radio.
