So as John Zech just noted, it's fundraising time at the station. Always busy, as he suggests*. Meanwhile, at the same time that we're on the air sending out the membership message, an email arrives from Brian Newhouse: do we have Antal Dorati's 1951 recording of Copland's Third Symphony? It's going to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame this weekend. (Apparently there's such a Hall for recordings, just not people. Who knew?) Do we have it? Well, not on CD, but we manage to scare up an LP. So we'll hear that during the intermission of tonight's Minnesota Orchestra broadcast. If Brian can scare up a turntable...
* And particularly today, with such a generous response from contributors. Thanks, everyone!
