Sitting at the Radio Station

For the next few weeks I will be hosting the Sunday evening program on WRR Classical 101.1 in Dallas. ( for the stream over the internet). There is also some possibility that I will be hosting from 10 am to 3 pm during the weekdays, but that's a development as yet to be seen.

For those of you interested in my singing escapades, I begin recording my first commercial CD this week. Madame Z is coming out to help with the proceedings, and hopefully we can knock it out in two long sessions. I hope so.

It will be available this summer, barring any unforeseen difficulties. The rep is all Roger Quilter. My next project will be a disc of songs composed especially for me by my good friend Hildegunner Runnirsdottir. (provided of course, that she writes them for me) Nudge nudge, wink wink, aHEM!

I have been busier than a one armed paper hanger this week, and it's not looking like it will be any easier next.

I need a vacation!

Together Again

I don't understand why it's always the good ones who leave us so soon. By now the nation has learned of the death of Dana Reeve, the widow of Christopher Reeve and the mother of young Will. What a untimely and incomprehensible loss her passing is to all of us.

Courageous, unflappable and a true force for good in the world, what an absolute crime it is for a Dana Reeve to die.

I hope that those people in our country who have power and influence will sit back and look at the way that Chris and Dana Reeve used their good fortunes, and ponder following suit. Wouldn't it be nice if every one of us used our talents and abilities to make the world better instead of destroying it for our own selfish purposes?

Will, my prayers are with you even though you don't know me from Adam. Dana, farewell great lady, and when you see him, tell Chris we all say hello and hope he's enjoying it up there.
