Cheesh! Jamming up the airwaves with that piano pounder Paderewski. Edison was SO right...for once.
BTW Norvo said that when Benny asked him to join him he had to start exercising his wrists. Goodman played so much uptempo stuff that even a veteran like him would have trouble keeping up over the long haul.

Opera and Baseball are very much alike; 45 minutes of heart-pounding actioncrammed into only three and a half hours. Sometimes it gets strenuous. Ilisten to both on the radio and sometimes it's a tough choice, but there wasno Lions game today because it is spring break so I heard Manon from theMet.Listening to opera on 78s is a lot like the sports wrap up on the late news- all the home runs and triple plays boiled down to four minutes, which isideally suited to my attention span anyway.Non-opera classical? Today on the Collector's Corner portion of myotherwise-loosely-formatted "big band" show I played Paderewski andKreisler. Nobody complained - yet.RodgerFor best results use Victor Needles-----Original Message-----From: 78-l-bounces at klickitat.78online.com[mailto:78-l-bounces at klickitat.78online.com] On Behalf Of Kristjan SaagSent: Friday, March 20, 2015 1:48 PMTo: 78-L Mail ListSubject: Re: [78-L] ...and what about non-opera classical?Yeah, serves to separate it from A Shakespeare Play where the stabbed guystarts reciting verses.KristjanOn 2015-03-20 19:38, Julian Vein wrote:>> On 20/03/15 14:03, Joe Salerno wrote:>>>> I regard opera as the prior day equivalent of a motion picture.
