Classical Music on the Radio in Connecticut

Postby classicalfan » Tue Oct 10, 2006 2:29 pm

I am new to this forum. I appreciate that we have a place where we can talk about the state of radio these days and not be judged unlike other message boards.

As you probably know, WNPR Connecticut Public Radio dropped most of its classical programming last June. This is an unfortunate decision in my opinion.

As the choices to hear this music on the air become less and less around the country, websites like http://www.beethoven.com become more important and unique every day.

Keep it up.

Welcome to the board, classicalfan.

Yes, we are fortunate to have a place like beethoven.com to discuss our love for classical music.

You know, I was just thinking about this the other day. I could use some minions. I was watching a James Bond movie the other day and I wondered how these evil guys get all their minions. Do they take out an ad on Craiglist? I suppose something along the lines of:

Evil genius with plans for global domination has immediate openings for minions. All skill and experience levels considered, pay commensurate with experience. Must be willing to swear fealty and fight to the death against superheros and British agents. Good Benefits. Uniforms provided.

Or, do you just run for high office as a Democrat?

I informed the cats last night that I'd designated them my minions, all the folks at work having already declined the job, and the Siamese promptly demanded some of my braunschweiger. The Tuxedo kitty ignored me.

I think I'm SOL for minions, here. :pout:

The Siamese is showing leadership potential - get rid of him. Leadership potential is not a good quality in a minion... ;)
