New Idea for your show

Postby EJA_2 » Thu Feb 15, 2001 5:27 pm

Nicole and friends,<BR> I just walked into my office and heard the flower duet playing on Sir Stewarts show. I wondered how many people out there would know it was the flower duet. Our local classical radio station has an all requests program on the first Friday of each month. Every month its the same: a zillion requests for the flower duet. So, you see, I know the flower duet when I hear it. Anyhow, as I was thinking about that it ocurred to me: you should start a new feature called Nicole's Revenge. You play some obscure -- but good -- piece and don't tell anyone what it is. Then all these smarty-pants types would have to e-mail you their paltry guesses. You could do it say once a week for an hour and give beethoven.com hats, t-shirts, or mousepads for the prizes (I have all three coming, but that's another story. . . ). If nobody could guess, you would keep them in suspense until the next week's show. Hmmm. I like it. Anyone? <P> -- Ethan Adams<BR>

Answer....What is Lakme, Shos?<P>okay, I'll take classical compositions by Marvin Suggs and his Amazing Muppephones, for $1000, Shos. Hope this is a daily double, I know everything about Suggs.

Hi Jason. This one wasn't meant to be a quiz, although the Nicole columns have turned in that direction. I'm looking for the answer because I flat out DON'T KNOW. It was familiar, but from what?<BR>Shos

I just checked the What Wuzzit column, and the composer was Delibes, so you are probably right, Jason.<BR>Shos

It is actually a favorite piece of mine, you can find it within Lakme....and now there is one to grow on.

Cripe-O, Jason. I missed your jeopardy-flavored message in between our posts. Thanks, and take care.<BR>Shos

The Flower Duet by Leo Delibes is from his opera Lakme which was about a British officers love affair with a Brahmin priest's daughter. <P>I guess there is another flower duet by Puccini from Madame Butterfly which I can't seem to recall at all. Maybe Nicole will play that for us.<P>What does anybody else think of my idea above? I think she should do this every Friday at 12:20 EST, after lunch so she's not <I>too</I> mean. And just one piece per week. <P> -- Ethan Adams<P>

Yah know, I still think this is a good idea. Just wanted to resurrect it one last time. . . <P>Maybe it should be modified, but the core idea of playing a piece and making everyone guess really appeals to me. Once a week would be often enough. Or the same piece, or parts thereof accompanied by a hint every day. Start on Monday and give us til Friday to figure out. <P>I suppose you don't need more work, Nicole? Have Shos pick the pieces for you, if you are feeling lazy. Image<P> -- EJA
