Some music is over rated, your selections today are not that kind of music. Thank you.

Thank you - I appreciate that you appreciate it.

I was shocked when I heard the Mass in C Major - I recognized it as Beethoven right away then realized that I had lived nearly 70 years without ever once hearing a nearly hour-long masterpiece by the greatest composer ever. But I am finally caught up on that one...

How Mighty How Mighty He Mighta Been

Ludwig Von died before he could go surfing or play an air guitar.

"Cowabunga, dude! If he'd only had the chance no tellin' how far......"

"Cowabunga, dude," said Lewdie as he shambled down the stair,
"I'm feeling flat, I got no pep, my Mass has got no flair."

"You got to quit Vienna, man, you got to shake things up!
You got to take up surfin' or kopshpielin' or somethin'!"

"Hey Luddie, how's it hangin?!" rang out cross the checkered bright-dark square.

"Cowabunga, dude! You wouldn't believe the chords I struck today!!"

Just two wild and crazy guys shootin' the shit with spring ah spring in the air.
