That's a funny Ray Stevens clip, Spud.  Reminds me of the old Spike Jones music.  I grew up listening to my grandmother's Spike Jones records on 78rpm.

Same for me.  I also laughed at Homer & Jethro when I was a kid.

Generally speaking, I like music with a little life in it:

You're welcome, Carl.

I only wish I would have "discovered" Baroque earlier in my life. Better late than never.

Randy, J.J. Quantz is a new name for me.  I just read his Wikipedia article.  Sounds like he was very influential regarding everything flute related:  playing, performing and instrument design,  I'll have to research his music more.  Thanks for the introduction.

Thanks, Carl. I love Vivaldi, too! Yes, S.B. is on PBS radio. I can get it from Indianapolis from 5-9 AM and/or 10-2 from Lafayette. I often catch the last two hours on the former, then the first two hrs on the latter station. And I can't help but frequently tape something I really like. I'm hoping to hear again Johann Joachim Quantz's 2 Flute concerto (in G Minor) to tape it. I was blown away by it. Ever hear of him?

Welcome, Randy.  I'm a huge fan of Baroque music as well, especially Vivaldi.  Is "Sunday Baroque" a radio program?

Comment by Randall Smith on June 15, 2014 at 7:30am

I have read where listening to music, especially classical baroque, can ease stress and tension, thereby postponing death a little longer. I guess I'm in luck. I listen to classical all the time and love "Sunday Baroque", 4 hours of great music.
