    That wasn't really in reference to anyone in particular

    Ok. My bad. Someone slammed me on page one for my opinion. I guess I kept going.

    I like Classical music, but I have to be in the right mood to listen to it. Either that or I have to be studying. By far in a way my favorite is Moonlight Sonata.

    Re: Classical music

    Classical music was the pop/rock/punk of their time. Most of the composers were considered radicals...rebels. Our understanding of the music today is too often limited by what we hear on NPR and college stations. There is some badass classical music out there. Im a huge fan of the now defunct East Village Opera Company. Olde School with a new twist.

    True. There are a lot of crap shows on NPR like the tavis smiley show, anything to do with music, and stuff like fresh air. The news is good though.

    Re: Classical music

    Only thing I don't dig on our station is the blugrass. Which is usually on the second HD channel and comes up on the weekends on the main channel. We have WETA for 24/7 classical and I feel they know what they're doing.

    There is only one kind of Great Music, the Classic Music!

    You wouldn't have the music you have today without classical music and jazz and blues as well.
