Okay it is now 4:00 PM on Sunday. Yeah I know, I was going to work on your letter. Well I spent all of yesterday knocking off some of my NY Times backlog. I have read through all the papers up to and including half of Wednesday. I read through at least eight or nine days of papers! I have also sorted through a monster pile of clippings.
I was all set to start typing at 1:00 PM and then Frank, A.K.A. control freak, ex-state trooper, decides he wants to cook! I should have passed. His bright idea was to make Spam sandwiches. YUCK. My mouth feels like I have sucked down a quart of 1OW30 Motor Oil.
They are doing pledge drive on the classical music station. They got only one pledge call in the last hour!
I just got done hearing Rhapsody in Blue, by George Gershwin. It is a newly released "Super" formatted CD. It sounds very crisp on my lousy mono radio. On a real audio system it would really be a blast.
It is interesting since this station is not a "state" radio station; they actually exist pretty much on only donations from listeners. It certainly speaks well of the people in this area. They are willing to give varying amounts of money, and support a classical music station. Not everyone is looking for the cheapest way to spend their money! I am certainly grateful.
Have you tried to listen in on the web yet? They said they actually got a pledge from Alaska and another from England. That is certainly pretty cool.
