Radio in my Head

Posted at 8:32 AM on August 14, 2012 by Alison Young (0 Comments)



In one week, I leave for a month-long sabbatical to hike the John Muir Trail in California. No iPod traveling with me, so I'll have classical radio in my head as I walk 222 miles through that sublime terrain.

I'd love to know your playlist for a solo hike. Great suggestions thus far on our SymphonyCast FB page with an emphasis on Beethoven and a Marin County, California composer who likely has walked some of the trail!

Thanks and "see you in September!"
