On Checking the Radio Schedule

I'm sure the world is dying to know:  but, no, I missed Tosca last Saturday.   One thing and another had to be done late Saturday morning and early Saturday afternoon.

So.  What's on tomorrow?

More bloody Wagner.

The good news is I have a funeral to do tomorrow and I'd miss the Met broadcast anyway, whatever it was.  But next week is La Clemenza di Tito.    So God is merciful.  (Even more than Titus.)  If you're in the L.A. area  KUSC, 91.5 is the appropriate station.

[Apparently for reasons known only to himself and God,  Puccini loved Wagner's music, thought it was the best thing ever.  Fortunately, he continued to write like himself and not like, well, anyone else.  Especially Wagner.]
