New York Phil program changes

Our apologies for differences in program listings and broadcast. The New York Philharmonic distributors have been sending almost weekly program changes - moving around several week's programs. Unfortunately, this has caused some discrepancies with promos and programs getting updated correctly through the PRSS distribution channels. We're left trying to figure out the changes and catch their mistakes. Hopefully things will settle down soon.

program NY Philharmonic 8/26/12

Am I in a time warp? Bronfman was promosted for 8/19/12. Shouldn't that be corrected?
