Good evening!
  8:04pm Listener Robert:

If two small string orchestras are playing together, aren't they one large string orchestra?
Avatar 8:14pm mariano:

Hey BK, fellow sophisticates!
Avatar 8:14pm Listening Out There:

@Robert: It is an orchestra grudge match.
Avatar 8:37pm ranjit:

too many orchestras!!
  8:41pm ami:

sounds like Varese starting his car on an east orange December morning...
Avatar 8:47pm Bethany Ryker:

@ami - now I can't stop picturing Varese in a car, wondering what make and model that would have been! He lived until 1965, so, listeners....what do we think?
Avatar 8:48pm Bethany Ryker:

((and @ranjit: Never (never ever!) too many orchestras!!))
Avatar 8:49pm ranjit:

too many orchestras to fit in one VW Beetle, which is my first thought for the varesemobile

My life feels like it's turned into a dark psychological thriller.
Avatar 8:50pm mariano:

*Because of the music, I mean, not in general.
Avatar 8:51pm Snortley:

Varese would have had a Nash Metropolitan.
  8:51pm Peter from Dover NJ:

Not usually tuned in at this time. Sounds like I should be. Good tunage.
Avatar 8:52pm Bethany Ryker:

Henry Brant's car has room for at least 80 trombones and four boatloads of 25 flutes each. (I can cite that reference!)
  8:54pm GC in The Slope:

This music is awesome!! Thanks for airing this.
  8:56pm ami:

your a real spanner...stretching 1 hour into 4...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Zetti:

Avatar 8:58pm mariano:

Thanks Bethany!
Avatar 8:59pm ranjit:

More orchestras than anyone else can fit into one hour!
