I went to Bach's Mass in B Minor last night with Seth and Sumana.
Extrapolating from the past two weeks, one might think that I attend
mass every Saturday night, but this is not true.
The first Kyrie is by far my favorite part of the mass, and
it was slow going near the end as I was pretty tired. But I recommend

According to the program for the Mass in B Minor, the solo mezzosoprano once performed the lead in a musical called The W of Bablylon. This I found very funny--it's something a more acerbic Bertie Wooster would say.
I poked the bean through the study door and Aunt Dahlia caught sight.
"Hallo, Bertie, you blot on the landscape," she said cheerfully.
"What ho, old W. of Babylon," replied I.

Wow! I found a great site containing information about how to listen to streaming audio of various semi-popular public radio programs: Allegro!. Thanks to John Rabold, who lives in Oakland and compiled the information, and to vsound, which works flawlessly to turn RealAudio streams into .WAVs, I recorded my first new My Word! episode this century. No My Music! because I missed the timeframe, but next week. I can record Schickele Mix this way as well.
Thanks are also due to Dean Morrell, who wrote me an email over a year ago informing me that his local station in Iowa broadcasts My x! over streaming audio. Thanks, Dean.
Yes, that message is still in my inbox.
