    Greetings from Tennessee

    I have been listening to “classical” music for quite some time and recently
    added your podcast on my ITunes.

    Thank you all so much for keeping it interesting and informative. I actually
    felt cold when Raymond talked about him listening to Sibelius in Canada!!
