You would still need an end time of course but this is doable if you  
adjust the 2nd param to strtotime (ie every Wednesday, etc)

What you really do is iterate over the call w/ your db and of course  
this is better to do w/ a transaction or stored proc (if you have  
MySQL 5+) and do some type of caching if its a public query.  I would  
have thought this would be possible w/ PEAR Calendar but it is not.
