Good evening Bethany. So nice to have you back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm unpopularfred:

Greetings Bethany,
I dig Ben Johnston, he's vastly underrated.
Avatar 8:14pm ranjit:

This has been a raucous start!
Avatar 8:16pm Linda Lee:

Hi, Bethany and 440ers!
Avatar 8:20pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Who has carrot cake?
Avatar 8:27pm Linda Lee:

i want at least 2 hours of A440. your show is too short, Miss!
  8:28pm Rynac:

The piece by Honegger was an unexpected delight.

I'd like to hear some aram khachaturian sometime? gul.ogg vorbis

I was watching that "Soundbreaking" documentary, and somebody says in reference to Eleanor Rigby "when's the last time you tapped your foot to a string Octet?" and I thought "um.. Mendelssohn"
Avatar 8:35pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

What Linda L. said.
Avatar 8:35pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Also: @unpopularfred: that line in Soundbreaking jumped out at me, as well. Like, hell, let me make a bloody LIST....
Avatar 8:36pm Bethany Ryker:

An hour does go by fast, doesn't it? Glad the show is keeping feet tapping and ears tuned!!
Avatar 8:36pm Linda Lee:

who do we petition? :-) are petitions more effective at fmu than they are in DC?
Avatar 8:37pm Bethany Ryker:

Oh, and...I could really go for some carrot cake. Teh bakery near me stopped making their carrot cake bars, and man, I miss 'em.
Avatar 8:38pm ranjit:

Now I want carrot cake too.

Local bakery had PUMPKIN PIE BARS for one brief moment of glory and now they are gone :(
Avatar 8:38pm Linda Lee:

i'd love some carrot cake too! not too sweet. large slice.
Avatar 8:40pm Bethany Ryker:

Must have cream cheese frosting.
Avatar 8:41pm Linda Lee:

Avatar 8:41pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

It is magical, a decent carrot cake. CC frosting, yes. Nutty, woody, dense.
As for petitions, I'd sign the hell out of that one.

...a rare treat, to catch the Hit Parade live. Typically lurking from the archives.
Avatar 8:43pm Linda Lee:

who can i speak to who will deliver 1 large carrot cake with cc frosting to the catskills forest where i live? who??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm unpopularfred:

@ Rev. Turnip Druid - what most bugged me about that series was its rock snobbery. Maybe snobbery is not the right word, but lack of pre-rock historical perspective.
  8:46pm JakeGould:

Bethany! Those Little Nemo carrot cakes are a nice treat if you can find them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm unpopularfred:

Bethany, I loved how that last set went together. Also, I believe the Emersons overdubbed themselves on that recording.
Avatar 8:49pm Linda Lee:

perfect sounds this evening. just perfect. cures for despair.
Avatar 8:49pm Linda Lee:

.. despite lack of carrot cake ..
Avatar 8:50pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@unpop: I was traveling, stuck channel-surfing in a hotel in Newark (don't have TV at home usually), found that episode about studio production. Very predictable flaws in the coverage, but I guess it beat watching weird preachers & infomercials for vegetable juicers.
  9:01pm Quinn:

Thank you Bethany!
Avatar 10:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx Madam R !
  7:10am Paul:

I enjoyed the Honegger too. I'm reminded of finding out that a string quartet at a contemporary music festival were going to play a Bruckner quartet, which I anticipated with dread but turned out a very pleasant surprise. Perhaps that's something to dig out.
