No rehearsal tonight, yay! I get to listen to Bethany's show, and nice Janacek!
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:04pm doca:

The horns are blowing, the flowers are blooming (but not where I live) and A440 is on! Hi, Bethany and fellow listeners
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 8:09pm Bethany Ryker:

Greetings all! I'm quite transfixed by this Sonata, hope you enjoy as well...

What did you say? I was caught up in listening...
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 8:12pm maestroso:

Ah yes...
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:12pm doca:

Helene Grimaud is one bad ass wolf lover pianist.
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:14pm P-90:

Yes, quite transfixing.

"Chimpanzee" sounds like the name of a hipster Brooklyn New Music ensemble.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 8:23pm Bethany Ryker:

That chimpanzee thing slipped in there as something cached in the database...gotta find out what the hell that is!
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:25pm P-90:

That's just Maestro Leopold "Bingo" Bingowsky, an associate of DJ Dave Abramson...
     Mon. 5/19/14 8:33pm 12539:

Just barely got my Black Tie on in time for the waltzing.
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:34pm P-90:

...I'm behind, still tying up my Capezio waltz shoe
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 8:34pm earrie:

And tippy-toe shoes.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 8:37pm Bethany Ryker:

'Face of Another' is actually the name of the film - my mistake earlier. Directed by Hiroshi Teshigahara from 1966. Anyone familiar??
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:39pm P-90:

It's a "minor" classic of postwar Japanese cinema
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:45pm P-90:

It was an adaptation of a novel by famous author Kobo Abe, whose book "Woman in the Dunes" had been made into a very successful film a year or two before. " It's pretty macabre, in a very Japanese way.
Avatar Mon. 5/19/14 8:46pm Bethany Ryker:

I'm so curious to know how a waltz figured in to it...
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:50pm Eric in va:

I take piano lessons and my teacher had me read through some of the piano part to the debussy during my lesson tonight so it was great to hear it on the drive home. Thanks for playing it
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:50pm P-90:

The guy whose face is horribly scarred in an accident and then is given a very convincing mask to cover it with, dances with his wife and seduces her, as the "other" person- the face on the mask.
When the truth is revealed she claims she knew it was him "role-playing" with her all along. But did she really?

Cafe scene, apparently:

Quite a good show tonight. Are you on the summer WFMU schedule, Bethany?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/19/14 8:55pm davex:

Fine selections, Bethany, waltzes and non-waltzes.
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:56pm Cooh John:

Have not seen the film, but know of Teshigahara. Since you mentioned it, it is now my #1 must see--so late.
Avatar    Mon. 5/19/14 8:57pm maestroso:

Oh, yeah! That was awesome! Thanks for the music, Bethany...
Three hours for Bethany!
     Mon. 5/19/14 8:58pm 12539:

I was just getting comfortable in my chair and now they're rushing me out.

Thanks, Bethany.
  Mon. 5/19/14 8:59pm P-90:

Thanks, DJ Bethany!
  Mon. 5/19/14 9:02pm Eric in va:

Agreed this show would work well in a three hour format -- kind of ironic that the genre with the most long format material gets one of the shortest time slots
  Fri. 5/23/14 5:01am afroblue 10:

what's the music on the background as you talk around 16 mins in the show? thanks
