Off to Tuscany

Dear Friends,

I will be on sabbatical at the WMNR villa in Tuscany for the next two Fridays, reviewing new music to share with you when I return on May 5.

Be sure to tune into The Night Café this Friday, April 21. Rich Moran Jr. will be there to provide his usual superb programming.

A presto, e stare vicino alla musica!
