    I love that song -- and am very glad you liked it, too.

    Thank you for the support and encouragement.


  • May programs on The Chicago Symphony   6 years 2 weeks ago

    The conductors' names for each of the broadcasts is missing which I consider to be a glaring oversight that I hope will be corrected.

  • Mornings, May 7 - 11   6 years 2 weeks ago

    I enjoyed hearing "On Eagles Wings" this morning as the follow-up to Garrison Keillor's poetry reading on the Writers Almanac.It was a thoughtful and an imaginative selection.I'm continually impressed with your choice of music as I listen to the Morning Program day to day. Certainly,you must devote a good deal of time and effort on each program. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job each morning.
    Best regards,

  • Mornings, May 7 - 11   6 years 2 weeks ago

    Simple answer - ME!

    However, that simple answer covers a lot of background, too. Growing up in a small town in New York State, moving to a larger city, getting married and moving to an even larger city. Driving. Classical music, always. Science Fiction reading (and now writing), singing in various choruses, Air Force (this is NOT an exhaustive list). Well, everything left its mark and is a part of who I am. But the controlling factor is still me.

    Some of my background is negative - I don't want to be that. Other is positive, as in I actively seek to be like that. And some of it is unconscious until I see it happening, like behavioral mannerisms that my father had. I made a conscious effort starting at age 19 to be something other than what I was, and became an extrovert and not afraid to meet people. That was the beginning of taking charge of my personality and really becoming me. It's still continuing, and I'm 66, now.

  • Masterpiece Classic: Birdsong   6 years 4 weeks ago

    I was bored to tears by this. The acting was very weak. Usually I love everything in the Masterpiece Classics series, but this could not hold my interest.
