    Motherinlaw: Re the quote from Freyda Stark ( & an abstract world ) I've  been very lucky to have had an interest in Classical music since my early teens. I was able to obtain a small transistor radio back then and it was great to listen to a local radio show entitled " Concert Hall " ( I think it was on from 8 PM to 10 PM five days per week ). The beautiful music did indeed seem to transport me to another world, if only for two hours at a time. A couple of years later I got my first portable record player and of course my first LPs featured Classical music. I often feel a bit sad for people who are not able to enjoy listening to music by Mozart & Beethoven ( & the other Great Composers ).

    Thanks for the post AlCzervik. I was also thinking of those people who have never listened to very much Classical music and thus never became interested in any of it.

    "classical" seems to be the base for all music. everything seems to have spawned from it, whether it's country, rock, rap, blues, etc.

    i agree, though, that there is a small percentage of people that listen to it nowadays. for example, where i live, there is no classical radio station (don't get me started on radio stations).

    Oh, come on, AlCzervik -- that's not Fair Frown --- Why Can't we get you "started on radio stations?"  I know some of us would love to get you started on radio stations ... so can we? please?

    Thanks for all of the new posts. We are a bit limited in the choice of radio stations in this area as well but some years back I bought a Satellite radio with a boom-box attachment for use in the house and I enjoy that system a lot.
