Listener comments!

  8:06pm J4ff:

I've been waiting all week with bated breath. Exhaling. Yes. The show begins...

  8:15pm r:

Watching football (BCS championship) and listening to Bethany; just like the old days, when could watch the Super Bowl and listen to SHP.
  8:16pm Skirkie:

That talk-over music was something else too.
  8:19pm Digital Text Message:

Sounded like Bach, but probably isn't Bach. You won't keep it a secret, right?
  8:20pm J4ff:

positively stunning.
  8:21pm bethany:

Talk over music was a bit of Tom Waits that I looped up - glad you like it
  8:23pm Karl:

Thank you so much!!!
  8:25pm Skirkie:

Oh neat. It seems lately after your show I find myself buying some of the things I heard, but for all I know I might already have that.
  8:28pm ranjit:

"Synthesis of Orchestra and Electronics" is a strangely unimaginative album name.

Love all the organ music!
  8:34pm maestroso:

Great hearing organ music on fmu, thanks Bethany. I didn't know Mr. Bartok had written for organ. Really great!
  8:42pm other david:

Really glad to see you back on the air Bethany, you gave me one of my favourite radio moments of last year - during a fill in - you gave a context to and then played Beethoven's Sonata for Piano, No. 32, Op.111 :)

Have loved the piece ever since
  8:47pm bethany:

I think with that Beethoven Sonata I did the same thing as with the Brahms tonight...didn't announce who wrote it until after, because that was the way I first heard it and became so interested. It's a remarkable piece. This show wouldn't be on the air if I hadn't had that experience! Not exaggerating!
  8:55pm Marmalade Kitty:

beautiful music. Thank you bethany!
  8:57pm other david:

I understand :)

The hosts enthusiasm & love for the music is what makes a program for me.

Had a similar experience tuning through the AM radio dial and hearing a Ludwig Thuille Concerto on a station from Germany. Just one of those moments.

Just keep doing what you're doing, great show!
  8:58pm 12539:

Thanks for another magic hour.
  8:58pm Robert:

Why, without your explan'n, I might've guessed he was named after Courtney T. Thanks.
  1:30pm donald powley:

This show should be a podcast! Please!
