As long as it's not microbiology, I don't care how you pronounce it.

You won't get the joke unless you look at the playlist comments from the preceding program.

  8:36pm wrobertü:

I enjoyed the Walters - very familiar, but to what, well, my attention is diverted by the Stravinsky now.
Avatar 8:37pm jt:

What's the most dirvtimenty instrument? I think it's a toss-up between the violin and the harpsichord... has to have strings, right?

Bethany, just want to say as a regular listener to "classical" music stations here in the Washington DC / Baltimore area that your selections are always a welcomed change from the "classics"
