Hullo. Gershwin so interesting.
Avatar 8:23pm JakeGould:

@LarryLurex: The station is mainly good ol’ rock and roll! So the non-rock shows tend to be unjust fully ignored.

This show is great!
Avatar 8:24pm Bethany Ryker:

Greetings fine folks!! So glad you are here tonight!! HUGE thanks to all who've pledged online for the October HELLRAISER...seeing the radio and pumpkin icons gives me a giant rush!!

@Jakegould first time I have listened to this show and so far I like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...in my ignorance classify Saint-Saëns as some kind of Moses of Ambient - so an eye-opener here...
Thx for curating such magnificent selections !
  8:28pm Dean:

WFMU really needs to expand classical programming along the lines, but others, too, that Bethany pursues.
  8:34pm ParUbi:

What’s that percussion?

Enjoyed hearing the Schnittke "Concerto Grosso", a lovely preview for a program of concerti grossi that my local town orchestra will be performing at the end of January.
Avatar 8:38pm Bethany Ryker:

@ParUbi that's prepared piano (or harpsichord!)
I believe

  8:49pm Dean:

Okay, I pledged my piddlyass few bucks.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

After last week with Scott Williams, I don't know what constitutes classical music anymore. I need more education on the subject.
  8:50pm Dean:

(In fact, I'm not even listening at the moment, because I'm playing some hella good gospel on my main system. But the program here warrants listener support!)

If your question is, "What is classical music?," then start with Monteverdi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm chresti:

Thanks Bethany!
  8:56pm acid rich:

can you pick a performance of beethoven's violin concerto for next week, with or without piano?
Avatar 8:58pm ranjit:

argh you peer pressured me into pledging!
  8:59pm P-90:

Thanks, DJ Bethany. And congratulations on a successful Hellraiser!

Thanks Bethany!

Avatar 8:59pm Frank Verplanck:

Agree with Dean, some more classical on WFMU couldn't hurt. I very much enjoy programs by people who know a lot about a style of music and can share it. I really like when they can explain what is notable about a piece. There was a guy, years ago, I think on WBAI (could be mistaken there) who would go so far as to play the same passage by different performers, and point out what was significant in each interpretation.
  9:01pm Eugene R.:

@Frank Verplanck - Yes, that is/was James Irsay on WBAI, "Morning Irsay", Fridays 10 am - 12 pm (at least until the coup overthrew the local programming).
Avatar 9:03pm Frank Verplanck:

"the coup"?! at BAI coups were a regular thing! Thanks Eugene R.
  9:21pm Dean:

Frank, yes! Comparative listening is an amazing experience! Emerson v. Bartok, v. Alban Berg (etc.) renditions of Bartok's SQs can be so instructive, but most importantly, they're all enjoyable.

hurrah, the future is here at last!

And there it goes, into the past!
