"Now I would like a program on Carl Nielsen, one of my favorites." That makes 2 of us at least.

Just a comment. Why do you pronounce the last name of Stravinsky as if it were spelled Shtravinsky? Somehow it doesn't sound right to my ear and every time I heard you say it I had to dwell on it rather than on what you were talking about. After all, Igor Stravinsky is not Dimitri Shostakovich. Is there an explanation for it?

You outdid yourself (if that's possible!) with the Stravinsky show. It was totally marvelous, esp. the trip to Italy, getting arrested and the "Strawhiskey" quote. Now I would like a program on Carl Nielsen, one of my favorites. Arnold Bax too, though that is maybe a bit of a stretch. George
