Alternate tunings always sound sour to me. This one sounds like Thai papaya salad.

I like how stochastic it sounds.

Checking in to give thanks for the Analog-message shoutouts last week! Now, instead of saying "Please, I have friends who have been quoted in The New York Times" I get to go "I've been quoted on A440/WFMU!!" Viva Stochastic Appositionalism!!!

Thanks, Listener Carl! An analog text message is on its way to you!!

Gosh, Tchaikovsky died at age 53. Younger than I am now.

I only know this song because of the movie Lady Vengeance..

Not that there's anything wrong with A440, but are we going to get any Stochastic Hit Parade? If not, why is it listed as both on the schedule? Just curious. Great to have you back on the air in either case.

I played trumpet (poorly) in junior high school. Switched to tuba in high school, and played pretty well. Now, I just shred a Gibson Les Paul. :-)

Played cornet fifth grade through senior high. I might try my hand at the recorder that my daughter outgrew (mostly to impress PLU Vicki).

Great set of Paganini variations!

egould310, it's the French Horn!
Avatar Tue. 10/11/16 8:56pm Bethany Ryker:

...but...at some point, I really want to learn piano. Or cello. Both.

Our HS band was invited to march in homecoming parades for a couple of nearby colleges. I remember it being really cold and trying to march and play was a struggle, especially as a freshman. It became easier by senior year.

Much love to those french horns. Brass section, yeah!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/11/16 8:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The French horn has such a tiny mouthpiece, right? A challenge to play, I'm sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/11/16 8:59pm Jack Scheff:

Thanks for another great show Bethany! Excellent dinner cooking music...
