Good Evening, class ;)
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:07pm Richard from Venezuela:

Great start of the show.
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:07pm CockTails42:

If this is Harrison, I'm gonna guess that percussionist William Winant is playing on this. An Invigorating piece!
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:07pm P-90:

Yes, nice start- you can't lose with Lou.

my wife said 'this sounds like angry roller skating'
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:10pm Edgar Cayce:

Hi, What was the first song you played?
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:10pm Edgar Cayce:

The one before Lou Harrison?
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:11pm dale:

edgar - you should be able to transport your consciousness into the future and tell her what the last song she played will be
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:12pm Edgar Cayce:

I'm asking for Rah. He was feelin it.
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:18pm Mrs. P:

Welcome back. Tim did a good job while you were away. We miss the Vicki and Bethany Monday night combo. The Harrison was a wonderful start tonight.
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:19pm Edgar Cayce:

Does anybody know?
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:20pm CockTails42:

I wish I knew.
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:20pm Richard from Venezuela:

Bethany: Do you know the cuban - venezuelan composer Angel Rada? The majority of their releases are free to download vía lastfm www.last.fm...
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:20pm Bethany Ryker:

That little "Trinidad" glitch was fun. Wish it had been intentional!
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:21pm Bethany Ryker:

The Harrison was the first piece I played, there was a little spill-over from Night People...
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:22pm P-90:

@Edgar: you seem to be referring to music played on the Night People show that precedes A440. The were playing Bach organ pieces, some or all of which were W. Carlos' synth arrangements.
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:23pm Rynac:

This piece by Vinao is very intriguing! An unexpected discovery.
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:23pm Edgar Cayce:

Cool thanks. It was a nice transition; i'm digging your jam blasters too
     Mon. 6/23/14 8:25pm 12539:

Loving the endless marimba.
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:26pm maestroso:

Really enjoying the show, listening whilst preparing a light supper... perfect! The Lou Harrison was awesome indeed.

How long until someone writes "Meditation on Birtwistle's Name"?
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:40pm Bethany Ryker:

@P-90, SOON I HOPE!
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:41pm Matt from Springfield:

So where have I been Haydn??
Just lurkin' and listenin' while eatin' dinner. Amazing selections as always, Bethany! Hi everyone!
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:42pm Andy:

This is a very pretty piece.
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:43pm Alex Kid in Miracle World:

The animals in my room are enjoying this
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:45pm JakeGould:

“The animals in my room are enjoying this.” So racist.
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:45pm Rynac:

My partner and I are enjoying this!
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:47pm Bethany Ryker:

@Rynac: well...howdy, partners!
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Any partner who enjoys this must be great!
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:49pm Bethany Ryker:

quick, before I post it and before anyone looks online....any guesses which composer wrote these Variations on a Theme by Haydn??
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:49pm doca:

Me and myself are also enjoying this, Bethany. Hi all!
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jake: Is it calling them "animals" that's the problem, or the fact of keeping them caged??...
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:50pm bunyan:

It's one o' the Three B's...
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:50pm Bethany Ryker:

Matt has it right!!! I'm outing them: those are my parents back in Nebraska. Andy they are lovely a million times over. Xx.
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:50pm Rynac:

Brahms??
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Hmmm, Rachmaninoff? He arranged some transcriptions by Bach..
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:50pm P-90:

J. Brahms?
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:51pm Bethany Ryker:

Dad, did you cheat??
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray, Bethany's folks! Lovely people, I can tell! :)
     Mon. 6/23/14 8:51pm 12539:

Relatives should be excluded from any contests.
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:52pm Bethany Ryker:

Yes, yes. BRAHMS. I selected the lesser identifiable movements. Good Work all!
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:52pm Rynac:

No, I actually listened to the orchestration, it seemed romantic, so I took my best shot.
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:53pm P-90:

Welcome to the Rynacs from the East Coast Contingent!
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Brahms is quite a romantic Romantic.

I second P-90--the coasts and the rest of the world welcome you to this most special Classical series!
Avatar Mon. 6/23/14 8:55pm Bethany Ryker:

Well, yes, Pa - you've always enjoyed the music. Get a piano. I know you want to play!!
Avatar    Mon. 6/23/14 8:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Schubert! Always so great.
     Mon. 6/23/14 8:57pm 12539:

Quickest hour of the week.

Thanks, Bethany.
  Mon. 6/23/14 8:59pm P-90:

Where did that 60 minutes go?
Thanks, DJ Bethany, welcome "home", have a great week, "see" you next Monday...
