Classical Notes: May 7, 2010 Archive

Don't forget Mom!

I was gabbing with my mom yesterday via Facebook (can you believe my MOM knows more about social networks then me?!) I was telling her about what I've been up to lately:

"This Sunday I'm taking dedications and requests from 8-2 for Mother's Day...oh, woops, right, uh...mom, Happy Mother's Day!"

I had nearly forgotten MY mom, so I very deftly filled out a Mother's Day request form then and there...I was saved!

If Mother's Day slipped your mind too, there's still time to request a special piece of classical music for mom either today on Friday Favorites or on Sunday.

The Latest Thing from Google

Check out today's design of the Google logo--once again they've customized it to observe a special day.

If you're a fan of this composer, you'll be glad to see him recognized. If you're a fan of design, you may be amused that the artist handles the word "Google" in a way that almost makes it disappear. (It's there, though.)
