Terrance McKnight asked me to let you (Mary Stewart and Jim Duffy) know that on Thurs. Jan 2nd at 11:45pm he aired pianist Aleksandar Serdar's performance of the Busoni arrangement of the Chaconne from Partita No. 2 -BWV 1004.

Happy New Year!

More coherent? But still obscure.

Dear David,

I would love, just love, to hear something I've only heard once.

All I know is that it was a poem from an Attica inmate. That is was done by an ensemble from CA called something like Ear Orchestra; and I'm not even sure about that. Last I heard it was never recorded for consumers.

I've been a good girl...

Yes, please do tell us more about that last piano piece on your show on Thursday, Jan. 1. Who was it, and where can I get it?

Thanks. Keep up the fine work.

Where is the program listing for Jan 1? As we listened, the schedule showing was for the 31st. We are dying to know who was playing the unaccompanied violin bach suite arranged for the piano. It was fabulous and as we waited eagerly for the announcement, instead John shafers voice for the next program came on. And today, I can't find it in the archives. Also, clicking on "previous episode' brings up the 31st, not the 1st.

I love your show. mary
