Subject: RE: BS: Happy Beethoven's Birthday! (Dec. 16)
My brother's birthday occurs mid-December. When he was very young, I used to tell him that the whole world was getting ready to celebrate his birthday. When he was older and (a little) wiser, we used to drive to Waltham and visit the classical radio station WCRB, where they had a birthday cake for Ol' Ludwig. Good cake, free bumper stickers with corny classical puns, such as "You Can't Go Farandole", "Bach Is Beautiful", "I'm Yours Faure Song", "Oh Milhaud My", and my personal favorite: "Eschew Obfuscation". And a tour of the radio station.

So Up With Ludwig Von!
