My car radio is usually tuned to FM 91.5, better known as classical KUSC. The channel plays beautiful classical music, but because they are listener supported, every three months they go on donation overdrive.
So, I was listening to them go on and on about how I should help keep the music going, and that if I pledge $180, that is $15/month to them for a year, I would receive a 6 CD collection of the 100 best Opera classics.
Don’t get me wrong — I love KUSC and I totally appreciate the fact that they need the support of those who listen to them. However, I really prefer their music to recitals of their phone number, repeated ad nauseum.
They must have realized what I was thinking, for they started playing songs from the promised 6 CD collection. In particular, they played this miracle.
Who said music can’t move you? To cut a long story short, I am now a donor and waiting for my promised CDs to show up.
