What are you listening to? 2024

I’ve invested in home sound repro for quite some time. Too poor to buy upper end items, but still found great deals and have two rooms equipped for lovely sound. Looking for a new table, though. Might pick up and old Gerrard I saw in a pawn shop. Wish I could find a Rega or Well Tempered.

The Springfields on tour with Bobby Vee, Jimmy Crawford, Clarence Frogman Henry, Tony Orlando and Suzy Cope in February 1962. I found the comments (below) from Suzy Cope on a Tom Springfield thread sometime before he died. She toured again with Dusty in late 63 and that was the tour The Searchers were on.

Dear Tom. I wonder if he remembers when we all toured with Bobby Vee, Tony Orlando, Searchers etc. And I used to sing ‘Silver Threads and Golden Needles’ with my guitar as I sat at the front of the touring coach. We travelled up and down the country performing at the Granada and Gaumont Cinemas and iconic theatre venues.
Someone taught it to me as a child and the Springfields were so taken with it they recorded and had a major hit with it.
Still have the thankyou letter from Tom. Great times touring ! Sue (Suzy) Cope

WQXR is a go-to in the mornings for me. Besides the music, the DJ Jeff Spurgeon is a joy to listen to. The combination of his voice and the music he plays always calms me down. This morning I needed it. He played the Haydn symphony this morning, then I got into some Beethoven mentioned on a NY Giants website I frequent, followed by Rachmaninoff piano concertos that I remember from the old player piano we had.
Thanking my stars that I am allowed a headphone in one ear at work.

If memory serves me correctly from the DJ that played it back in the day, the story of this composition is that Haydn wrote it thinking nobody would ever be able to play it. I don’t know if this is the definitive version but Midori playing Tzigane by Haydn will always be one of my faves. Piano also great. Repost sorry!
