Wow! I just found this out about Yo Yo Ma, honu.

Yo-Yo Ma (born 7 October 1955) is a famous cellist. He is a French-born Chinese American. His family name is “Ma”, so his full Chinese name is “Ma Yo-yo”. Yo-Yo Ma is one of the world’s greatest cellists. He plays many kinds of music, not just classical, and he has performed to three presidents of the United States.

Loved your Bach bit and that man play cello as well as Pablo. Razz

Here's another by Bach that I mentioned earlier.


Back later, y'all, with my goodnight song.

Well, most of the animals are all right I'm glad to see.

@Barry The Mod,
Wow! I can't believe that The Beach Boys did one based on Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, Brit, nor that Bobby McFerrin did Ave Maria. Marvelous!

edgar is back I'm happy to say.

Here is another classic that evolved into a pop tune, folks, and it will be my goodnight song.


And, the pop lyrics

Full moon and empty arms,
The moon is there for us to share,
But where are you?
A night like this could weave a memory,
And every kiss could start a dream for two.

Full moon and empty arms,
Tonight I'll use the magic moon to wish upon,
And next full moon,
If my one wish comes true,
My empty arms will be filled with you.

Full moon and empty arms,
Tonight I'll use the magic moon to wish upon,
And next full moon,
If my one wish comes true,
My empty arms will be filled with you

Goodnight, world

From Letty with love

Good morning, WA2K radio audience.

Hey, Brit. Loved that one by Harcsa Veronika. Hmmm, jazz with a Hispanic beat. That gal is good. Thanks.

Satt fs, Welcome back. Celtic Woman is truly marvelous. Her version of Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring complete with violin was a lovely way to wake up to the day.

Today is George Benson's birthday, and here's one by him that all our listeners will enjoy. Great jazz guitarist, too.

Hey Letty & WA2K

Glad to see Edgar back safe and sound. Hope you are OK and brother... well... you know.

Well, I've tried Letty - youtube won't let me put the songs up I want to - which is very frustrating.

The sun is shining.... but... somedays, ahhhhhhhh...... some days hurt hurts.

Anyhoooo... the song I wanted to listen to

not the video I wanted.... but hey ho...

Elvis Costello

She may be the face I can't forget
The trace of pleasure or regret
Maybe my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
May be the chill that autumn brings
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day

She may be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a Heaven or a Hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell....

She, who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry
She maybe the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows in the past
That I remember 'till the day I die

She maybe the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I care for through the rough and ready years

Me, I'll take the laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is
Oh, she....

Izzie, I love that Elvis Costello song, gal. I understand than many groups are complaining about certain functions of YouTube folks, so our Izzie is not the only frustrated person. I think I, too, would have enjoyed the video more had it been Diana Krall as "she". Razz

Today is Andrew Lloyd Weber's birthday, so here is a tribute to that marvelous Phantom man. It's a wonderful one for Sunday morning, y'all.


Hope today is good for all of us.

Thanks again, puppy, for the quintet of famous folks and the added info.

Here's one by Sondheim that is truly funny. Incidentally, y'all, "George" is Georges Seurat.


Don't blame the lady singing for being a bit obstreperous.

Good morning, folks from radioland. I may be in and out today, or occasionally lurking. Not sure yet. Hope you all have a pleasant day.

edgar, don't lurk too long, Texas.

Our edgar likes this duo, folks, so I'm going to play it again for him and those he holds dear.

It is well worth our while to read the comments about the quality of voice, too.

Thanks for the acknowledgement, edgar.

Hey, Barry the Brit. Great jazz by Oscar. Love Green Dolphin Street.

Thanks for the hilarious version of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables. I noticed that funny lady mentioned the master of the house thinking he was Voltaire, so here is the overture of Candide, folks, by the great London Symphony Orchestra.

Can't recall who did the original. My foggy mind says maybe Theresa Brewer and somebody - Anyway, this is Jaye P Morgan and Eddy Arnold.
