There are some nifty ideas in this list. I remember something like "Music History Minute", a one minute bio. I'd like to see something like that return, followed by some short piece by the composer.

"My" bio would make a good start (he sez modestly).

Some of us might even supply information, so you guys don't have to do the work. In fact, Hal9000's thread would be a great source.

:D Thanks Shos! I am obviously in agreement with the history segment idea. Though I'm not so sure my thread would be a great source. I would think of it more as a reminder... a daily post-it note on the fridge if you will. I'm sure there are details I miss that the BR staff wouldn't, especially NM. I have heard some pretty cool bio info come from her that I would have never found.

Perhaps a segment featuring the latest news concerning Charlotte Church. We could call it:

Church Chat

:D [/b]
No problem with sopranos in general, but it only takes me about five seconds to go back to my collection of MP3s on my hard drive when that comes on.

There seem to be a few pieces that drive people nuts. I know Bones can't stand "Happy Together" by the Turtles because of one silly line, I change the station when I hear "Signs" or "Revenge." My wife hates "Cathy's Clown."

I'm not about to try to dictate any one else's tastes in music, but every once in a while, a piece comes along that simply makes someone cringe.

I thought Toledo's zoo was the most famous.

Actually, I've only been to ONE of those houses listed (Sydney) for a performance. When I was in Italy, my travel agent booked me a hotel room somewhere in Switzerland when we were staying in Milan, so I didn't get to attend a performance at La Scala (although I did tour the museum), and La Fenice wasn't much more than a pile of rubble. :( We did stay at the La Fenice Hotel next door.

Of all the houses I've heard performances in, though, my personal acoustical favorite is the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, CA, with the orchestra in the pit. It's not an opera house as such, but I really, really, really like the sound there.

Bach, Bach... there's never enough Bach!!! :eek:

i think you should swap out the 1:00 waltz for 'Vivaldi's Vault'.

i absolutely adore the Music History Minute idea as well. learning something new everyday should be a requirement. a large % of the population stops acquiring/retaining new information in their 20's. pitiful... just pitiful.

how about a daily/weekly segment something from the local musicians in the area? live performances are always a treat.

No, it's Toledo's swiss cheese that's most famous.

Toledo Window Box is the name of a George Carlin album. It comes from a routine involving how people identify the places their marijuana was grown, and gives examples (most of which have faded from my memory - you figure out why) like "Acupulco Gold" and "Jamaican Ganji." Eventually he got down to the lower grades, where he mentioned "Toledo Window Box."

Famous people who were born in Toledo:
Danny Thomas
Jamie Farr
barfle (although I don't remember living there)

This sure got hijacked today, didn't it? I start bragging about a couple of great halls I've been in, and end up with buckeye pot. :eek:
