Classical Corner: Classical Gonq

I’ve always loved Classical music.
[Note: I have also loved art and design. I have been asked many times via comments on the design of this blog – so I will say it here – I used a WordPress TwentyTen template. It is free if you have a WordPress blog]  I am considering closing down the comments section simply because I keep getting spammed.

When I was in high school, I was in an orchestra, band and choir.  I sang tenor and alto. I still sing alto.  In orchestra, I played tympani, drums, glockenspiel, chimes, cymbals and all kinds of smaller percussion instruments.  At this time I play more folky hand drums such as a bodhran, bongos, djembe and the like.

Currently I love contemporary classical and my favourites include Philip Glass, Matt Bellamy and Patrick Hawes.  I love movies that feature classical music – both the newer classical and the timeless sort.  Case in point – when I saw the Amadeus movie in the 1980’s, I wanted an all-Mozart music wedding.  I still am pretty fond of Mozart but my tastes have broadened since then.

As for modern and contemporary classical – you’ll usually find at least one good piece in disaster movies (and other movies too)!

Here is a link to an air check of a pitched show I would have had on CKDJ if I didn’t already have Stoke the Folk (which I also love).  The show was called Classical Gonq.(Note: Classical Gonq was later accepted and the first show aired on Tuesday, February 28.  Playlists are available via my laurieanncopple.wordpress.com blog on Classical Gonq playlists).

Since posting my initial post on this particular page, I’ve had a chance to intern on CBC Radio Two’s Tempo – a great classical show that airs from 9 am to 1 pm.  This show is hosted by Julie Nesrallah, who is funny, very friendly and smiles when she speaks. She has excellent producers behind the scenes named Adam and Michael.  I learned so much from them over the four days I was with them.  I was editing the beginning and end of musical pieces, catalogued pieces and I was  able to sit in on a Tempo show on December 23.  I never did get that internship at Classical 96.3 FM in Toronto, but I believe they just weren’t taking interns right now.  Perhaps they had a change of plan between the time I initially contacted them and when I sent my files.   I may have a chance to have Classical Gonq again on CKDJ – if that is so, I will be posting my playlists on my home page and noting them on his page as well.   Meanwhile, I discovered a new-to-me Canadian composer named Ann Southam.  She created a gorgeous piece called “Remembering Schubert.”

Here is a link to the tune on YouTube (it’s used as the background to an art show)


Ann Southam “Remembering Schubert”

Enjoy!

Happy 2012 – I hope you have a great one.  Since I’ve had a horrible computer crash on both my laptop and backup drive, I only have one way to go – up.   But I am sure it will get better (Note – It has, despite three computer techs and a lab that could retrieve nothing of my radio and school work).  In the midst of a difficult holiday season, I’ve had special moments, especially during my internship at CBC.   And I’ve met some very special people there – Amanda Putz (Bandwidth), Adele Cardamone-Martel (EP CBC Music Dept), Julie Nesrallah, Adam Saikeley and Michael (Tempo).   Here is a souvenir from my time with Tempo (copied from Twitter)

BREAKING NEWS! CLASSICAL GONQ IS GOING TO AIR!! Listen to the premiere show: Tuesday, February 28 at 6 pm EST – on ckdj.net!

February 22, 2012

Hi!  Here is the playlist for next Tuesday’s show.  I am already and looking into artists for March 6’s show and have been having a real time of discovery.  I’ve found artists that I didn’t know about before. Sometimes you just have to be inspired on where to look.  That and requests from listeners.

The only thing is, why, oh why are some contemporary classical composers called “New Age?”  Is it because it’s “relaxing” music?  My husband Tony thinks that classical is just of the classical period, (1700’s) and perhaps the romantic period (1800s).  But Baroque (1600’s) and Renaissance (1500’s) are considered classical.  Modern classical is 20th century to 1975.  But contemporary (post 1975)?  It is work to find new composers, but I can say that they are out there.  Just a few artists include: Patrick Hawes (UK), Marjan Mojetich (Kingston, ON), Todor Kobakov (Toronto), Michel Plourde (Toronto), Rick Mauti (Toronto), even Paul McCartney.  Actually Paul has written classical pieces now for at least 10-15 years and you can hear his love of classical in many of the Beatles songs, including Eleanor Rigby.  But I digress.

Is Classical Contemporary “New Age” music?  Maybe for some.  But to me, New Age music is more like relaxing electronic such as Tangerine Dream. Or Enya.  What do YOU think?  While you’re pondering that question, you can look up my first Classical Gonq playlist (from February 28, 2012).  WordPress won’t let me link the pages, so you’ll have to paste the link in your browser:

https://laurieanncopple.wordpress.com/classical-corner-classical-gonq/ckdj-107-9-cla…gonq-playlists/

(Note – March playlists have a different URL)

If you’re not able to access the page mentioned above, I am playing Mason Williams (show theme Classical Gas), Matt Bellamy (The International Theme), Stanley Myers, “Cavatina (Love Theme from the Deer Hunter),”  Harold Kloser, (The Day after Tomorrow theme), Eric Whitacre (Sleep), Howard Shore, “Evenstar” (Lord of the Rings – Two Towers), Andre Gagnon (Audable), Phillip Glass (Pruit Igoe and Prophecies), Rick Mauti (Movement in E Flat), Mark Mancina (August’s Rhapsody from August Rush).

I hope you have a chance to listen!  It’s on ckdj.net, Tuesday February 28 at 6:00 pm Eastern.

Here’s the Classical Gonq Facebook Page. The best way to message me!

Also if you like folk music, I have a lot more about that at laurieanncopple.wordpress.com.  Classical Corner is literally only a tiny part of my blog – and yet it gets the most comments!

Well, I had the first live broadcast of Classical Gonq this week and it went very well.  I had my folk show co-host act as tech for me since the cd player does not fire from the board and I can’t reach it from the microphone.

Toronto composer Rick Mauti (Mau-oo-tee) was listening in as well as regular listeners I have from other shows.  I can’t podcast it, and even if I could, the batteries in my marantz recorder quit in the middle of the first set.  But it was good.  Some of the other radio students didn’t realize what was going on with classical music playing through the newsroom (beside CKDJ studio) and another student didn’t like classical music. So he turned the station to CKDJ’s sister station AIR Algonquin – a top 40 station.  In one way I thought that was funny, however, I have to find a way to win him over.  I did win others over however… and it was like they could take a deep breath and get on with their studies.  And then one hour later, I was on that top 40 station, as I normally am on Tuesday nights this semester.

I have most of next Tuesday’s show planned, and hope to include a new Howard Shore piece from the new movie Hugo.  It was nominated for an Oscar as best score although it didn’t win – it lost out to a jazz number from The Artist.  But Howard Shore is still greatly loved and I’m sure he will win again like he did for Lord of the Rings.  I just found out that a local Ottawa choir will be singing selections from the Lord of the Rings soundtracks in July 2012.  That will be a treat.

Meanwhile, it’s back to the books for me.  My next playlist will be on the Classical Gonq playlists on my Laurie-Ann Copple blog.  If you’re accessing this site via WordPress, that’s easy. If you’re reading via an RSS feed, then go to laurieanncopple.wordpress.com – it’s the best way to see all I have.

Thanks for reading!

Yours, Laurie-Ann Copple

The show for March 6 is planned (playlist is on laurieanncopple wordpress blog – just click on March 2012 Classical Gonq playlists).  Sometimes when I search for pieces to play, I find some completely at random.  Youtube is like that.  So is the CBC Radio 3 site, where I often do a little research into Canadian composers.

I hope you will tune in Tuesday at six pm eastern via ckdj.net

Thanks for reading (and listening!)

Hi!  Classical Gonq was a hit this week – the playlist is on the Classical Gonq March playlists section of the laurieanncopple.wordpress.com blog site.  Once again, I remind you dear reader, that this little page is a very tiny part of my blog.  Please feel free to roam the whole site – including my Folk posts, my CKDJ Monday morning show page and so much more.

The show this week featured Patrick Hawes (Eternal Mysteries), Anne Southam (Remembering Schubert), Hans Zimmer (Inception Theme), Steve Bell (Moon over Birkenau), Todor Kobakov (North Train), Valerie Milot/Antoine Bariel “Old Friends- Simon and Garfunkel tribute), Howard Shore (Father from Hugo Soundtrack), Ennio Morricone (Theme from the Mission), Paul McCartney/London Symphony Orchestra (My Love) and James Horner (A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics from A Beautiful Mind).

My classmates are getting more used to the idea of a contemporary classical music show on CKDJ and are asking for requests!  I will be honouring these – which include Tommy Emmanuel’s version of Classical Gas (although I actually prefer Mason Williams’ original), John Williams’ theme from Far and Away and more.   Rick Mauti (Mystic Music man) from Toronto also sent me his newest cd, so I plan to include a piece from that.

Have you ever heard of a violinist/composer named Ruth Fazal?  She’s amazing – although I can’t describe her symphonic work at the moment, words can’t come to me at the moment.  She is also a worship leader and well-known in Christian circles for her “soaking music.”  But her classical goes beyond both – it truly is spiritual and very inspiring.  I will talk about her when I have more words.  Again, earlier I mentioned that some contemporary composers are called New Age.  Some people would also call Christian “soaking” music the same genre.  But I don’t think it’s as simple as that.  If I can I’d like to include Patrick Hawes again.  There is something special about his music that fills you up and makes you feel good.  Maybe that’s just my taste right now.

If you know of a good Canadian composer, please let me know, I am on a discovery to find more.  Bye for now.  I’m currently planning next week’s Classical Gonq show as well as Stoke the Folk, the CKDJ Monday morning show and at least three other shows.  So if I can’t post all the time, that is why.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Classically yours,  Laurie-Ann Copple

March 11, 2012

This week’s Classical Gonq includes a request from Kyle, as well as a pick from Jacob Campbell and from our programme director Gillian Proudfoot. Here’s the list of artists I will play : Mason Williams (show theme), Kari King, Tommy Emmanuel, Evan Paul Kozaris, John Williams (guitarist), John Williams (composer), David Paich, Rick Mauti, Ruth Fazal, Howard Shore, Michel Plourde and Patrick Hawes. Can’t wait to bring you these selections… Listen at Tuesday, March 13 – 6pm Eastern at ckdj.net or locally on CKDJ 107.9 FM

By the way, did you notice that Howard Shore has been nominated for a Genie for his A Dangerous Method score?  He didn’t get the Oscar for the Hugo score, but maybe he will for this (Note: He did!) Playlist to come on the Classical Gonq March 2012 playlist page.

Thanks for reading – I would love you to become a listener.

And if you like folk, I’m on Stoke the Folk Monday nights 9 pm Eastern on ckdj.net.  I know folk better than Classical, but love them both.  Good music is good music, no matter the genre.

Classically yours, Laurie-Ann

Well, show number three went very well. More and more students are listening and they find they like this kind of classical music.  That and Tommy Emmanuel, the amazing classical guitarist is coming to town. So I’m playing Tommy again this week (on March 20th).   This week’s discoveries include Marjan Mojetich (in Kingston) and Isaias Garcia (young Canadian film composer).  And of course, the Nice’s symphonic piece, The Five Bridges (named for the bridges in Newcastle on Tyne in northern England).

Here’s what I’m playing this Tuesday..  Please listen in via ckdj.net Tuesday, 6 pm Eastern!

Classical Gonq Tuesday March 20, 2012

Kasey Egan Newscast, Classical Gonq theme (Classical Gas by Mason Williams), Patrick Hawes, Marjan Mozetich, Tommy Emmanuel, The NICE, Rick Mauti (Mystic Music Man), Kronos Quartet, Paul McCartney/London SO, Isaias Garcia and Andre Gagnon.

Enjoy!  And if you do listen in, please, please let me know.  I only have five more shows on this station, although Gillian Proudfoot will continue the show next year.

Classically yours, Laurie-Ann Copple

March 24, 2012

Show number five (on March 20) went pretty well.  One of my professors is now listening in.  He loves classical music, so I’m pretty happy for his ears (and YOUR ears too!).   I can see why so many people like classical music.  I once made the mistake of repeating a blues guitarist’s phrase of classical music being ‘all dead composers’ – but that was before I discovered contemporary classical.  And boy, was I ever wrong!  Contemporary classical is alive and well, although a niche market.  It’s not top 40, is sometimes esoteric but… that’s where movies come in.   And who doesn’t like movies?

Here is what is up this week (for a full set list, go to the Classical Gonq March 2012 page on my blog).

Classical Gonq Tuesday March 27, 2012        6 pm Eastern

Kasey Egan Newscast, Classical Gonq theme (Classical Gas by Mason Williams), Howard  Shore (twice), Alberto Iglesias, Gill Proudfoot’s interview with cellist Thadeus Morgan, Rachel Mercer/Kevin Lau, Rick Mauti (Mystic Music Man), Todor Kabokov, Two Steps from Hell and Trevor Rabin. (10 tracks, 5 Canadian, 50 per cent [c])

Please tune in if you can – on ckdj.net!

Hi!  This is my dad’s birthday.  In his honour, I wanted to put together an amazing show.  This one took me hours since I was discovering more new-to-me musicians.  One such find is Matt Haimovitz, who teaches music at McGill University.  He’s an Israeli born cellist, who decided when he graduated that he would take a different route as a contemporary classical musician.  He grafted in rock pieces.  He’s been on tour as part of a project with Christopher O’Riley (Shuffle/Play/Listen) and I think he’s coming to Ottawa in August but I haven’t been able to confirm it.  If you know any details, please message me via Facebook or via the comments!  He is married to composer Luna Pearl Woolf, and I haven’t been able to hear her pieces other than little excerpts on iTunes.  I found out about Matt through a George Strombopoulos interview and since then I’ve done some digging.  Matt is also part of a new Phillip Glass piece that’s just played in Ohio, I believe.

Google them! I keep trying to post the video here but WordPress keeps ignoring what I do. Sorry about that.

Here are the artists I’m playing this week.

Classical Gonq Tuesday April 3, 2012       

Kasey Egan Newscast, Classical Gonq theme (Classical Gas by Mason Williams), Ryan Shore “Musica” (The Shrine), Lesley Barber, “Mansfield Park Theme” (BBC Mansfield Park) John Debney, “Ressurrection” (The Passion of the Christ Soundtrack). Set Two is  Phillip Glass/by Kronos Quartet, “Mishima/Closing from The Hours” (The Hours Soundtrack), Matt Haimovitz and Christopher O’Riley, “Arcade Fire’s Empty Room”  (in studio- Shuffle/Play/Listen)
Rick Mauti, “Windbird” (Resonance),  Paul McCartney, “Hall of Dance Pt 1- Ocean’s Kingdom” (Ocean’s Kingdom Soundtrack), Todor Kabokov, “Carpe Diem feat. Emily Haines” and I will end with Howard Shore, “Lord of the Rings Overture”

Listen in Tuesday 6 pm Eastern on Tuesday April 3!!!  ckdj.net

======================================

April 7, 2012

Happy Easter weekend. Last week I learned that a friend of mine was killed in a head on collision while she and her husband were on vacation in Portugal. Her husband is recovering from serious injuries in the hospital.  Since I found learned what happened just an hour before broadcast, I dedicated the whole show to Angela.  I know she would have loved it.

Two more Classical Gonq broadcasts before CKDJ is put to bed for the summer.  I am considering having a classical show on another station, but we will see what happens.

Meanwhile, we’re going to the movies again.  Here is a taste of what you will hear on Tuesday, April 10 at 6 pm EST:

Classical Gonq – Tuesday April 10, 2012  6 pm EST ckdj.net

Hi.  I’m happy and sad at the same time.  We’re about to have our last Classical Gonq show since it’s the end of the semester.  CKDJ will go off air for the summer and I graduate in June.  I hope that Gill Proudfoot continues what I started next semester.  I am strongly considering starting a similar show on CKCU.  If I do, I may call it Classical Corner – especially since Gonq is from Algonquin, so that needs to stay with an Algonquin College station.   Here is my playlist – it includes some requests for John Williams pieces, and more Doctor Who music as well as some Canadian composers.

Classical Gonq Tuesday April 17, 2012 – LAST show on CKDJ!

Kasey Egan Newscast, Classical Gonq theme (Classical Gas by Mason Williams), John Williams, “Abandoned and Pursued: ET Soundtrack” (ET The Extra Terrestrial Soundtrack), John Williams, “Star Wars Theme” (Star Wars Soundtrack), John Williams/Salt Lake City SO, “2002 Olympic Theme” (American Journey).  Then I will play Isaias Garcia, “Fan film – Battle of the Hogwarts, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows;”
Cliff Eidleman, “The Battle for Peace” (Star Trek VI Soundtrack), Rick Mauti, (Mystic Music Man), “Feel the Rain” (Resonance); Gene Emerson, “Sailor’s Lullaby,” Isaias Garcia, “Epic Modern Orchestra Theme,” Murray Gold, “Tenth Doctor Theme”/Doomsday Theme (series 2) (Doctor Who soundtrack: BBC Wales Orchestra) and finally Patrick Hawes, “Autumn Leaves.”

Please make sure to listen in Tuesday, April 17 at 6 pm Eastern!  Last show on CKDJ!!!  ckdj.net.

Classically yours, Laurie-Ann Copple

April 22, 2012

Hi.  The last Classical Gonq on CKDJ aired on April 17th.  It was bittersweet. I am querying starting another classical show on CKCU, but this is all subject to approval.  If and when that does, I will update this page.  For now, I need to concentrate on my brand new job at NewCap Radio – which is completely a different genre – alternative rock.

Until then!

Classically yours,

Laurie-Ann Copple

December 10, 2012

Update: Since graduating Algonquin College, I have not had the opportunity to do Classical Gonq again.  However, during August and September, I did host a fill-in show called Classical Corner on CKCU.  It was very similar of course, and a lot of fun.  When I have an opportunity to get that show on a permanent basis, I will continue this portion of my blog.

There’s always new and interesting contemporary classical music, but I have picked up some favourites from when I was hosting Classical Gonq.

We’ll see what happens – the future is wide open (although at this time, I’m working as a board operator in Newcap Radio (Ottawa) and working on my health.  Then I will have the energy that a life in radio requires.  Thanks for reading … and for listening!

Classically yours,

Laurie-Ann

  1. You made various good points there. I did a search on the subject and found nearly all folks will consent with your blog.

  2. Eric Ferrer says:

    Thanks a lot for sharing this with all of us you really know what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Kindly also visit my web site =). We could have a link exchange agreement between us!

  3. I love the template on this website. Would you let me know where you can get it? Thanks a lot!

  4. Vannessa, it’s a template called Twenty Twenty that’s used by WordPress. I like it except it doesn’t let you change the top photo on your home page -it’s permanently set to ‘Ferns.’ It also doesn’t recognize ‘real’ html code. But other than that, it’s easy to read.

  5. Roy Casper says:

    I was very pleased to find this site.I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post.

    • Thanks! I’m still waiting on getting Classical Gonq onto CKDJ. Meanwhile, I’ve been keeping busy with other genres including a Monday morning show from 6 – 9 am Eastern time. There is nothing like the fulfillment I get from listening to peaceful classical music though – especially Patrick Hawes.

  6. My husband and i were absolutely fulfilled when Louis could do his researching via the ideas he was given out of the weblog. It’s not at all simplistic just to be offering information that many other folks have been making money from. And we all realize we now have the blog owner to give thanks to because of that. Most of the explanations you’ve made, the straightforward web site navigation, the friendships you aid to foster it’s everything excellent, and it’s aiding our son and us do think this theme is exciting, and that’s extraordinarily fundamental. Many thanks for everything!

    • The internet can be a great source of research if you know where to look. I’m glad you find my blog site helpful. It’s a labour of love. Interestingly enough, I met my husband online when I was researching for a grad study paper (before the days of the Google search engine). He is still very much into creating and maintaining his own websites (from scratch rather than from a WordPress type blog).

      And you’re right – I don’t make money from this – at least not for now. I’m all over the internet anyway – just ‘google’ my name. 🙂

      Thanks for reading!

  7. is olive oil good for you says:

    Hmm i hope you don’t get offended with this question, but how much does a site like yours earn?

  8. Ilona Varel says:

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

  9. I’m just using one of WordPress’s templates called Ten Twenty. No browser compatility problem generally but there are template issues.
    Unfortunately I don’t know how to change the top photo on the home page and it only positions in certain places, but when you’re using a template you get blips like that. I use Explorer and Firefox. I’ve not used Safari or Chrome so I guess I’m lucky, although one person complained that the formatting was funny in RSS. Nothing I can do about that.
    I would suggest to have all the different browsers on your computer to start off with to at least see what your site looks like in other browsers. And you could say “This site works best in Safari” – although most people don’t use that browser.
    Good luck.

  10. WONDERFUL Post.thanks for share..more wait ..

  11. Excellent website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  12. Sorry “Landscaping” – I don’t know of message boards on contemporary classical – but I am sure there are some. If you find them, please let me know. I’ve been so busy with being a folk radio host, a student and admin worker that I’ve not had a chance to explore this wonderful genre more than I have. If you’re on Facebook, please look up Classical Gonq on CKDJ 107-9 FM and ‘like’ the page. Then you can share requests and the like. The show will premiere on CKDJ on February 28th at six pm Eastern. You can listen online at ckdj.net. Have a great day!

  13. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of Classical Corner: Classical Gonq | Laurie-Ann Copple . Thanks for the post. I’ll certainly comeback.

  16. Good write-up, I am normal visitor of one’s site, maintain up the nice operate, and It is going to be a regular visitor for a lengthy time.

  17. swarovski says:

    Intimately, the post is actually the freshest on this laudable topic. I match in with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your approaching updates. Simply saying thanks can not simply be adequate, for the enormous lucidity in your writing. I can without delay grab your rss feed to stay informed of any updates. Solid work and much success in your business enterprize!

  18. nme says:

    Excellent issues altogether, you just gained a logo new reader. What could you suggest in regards to your post that you made some days in the past? Any sure?

    • I’m not sure how to answer that – I’m basically sharing my discovery of newer classical music. I did study classical music in school but that was years ago. Since then I studied visual art, counselling/theology/church history and now radio. So I’ve come full circle and can now play classical music on the radio. I would love a job in a classical music station, but there aren’t that many around.

  19. Wonderful post. My spouse and i understand one thing very complicated upon different sites day-to-day. It should continually possibly be stimulating to find out subject material by various other copy writers and also abide by fairly the one thing from their store. I might wish to utilize many while using the content in the blog site no matter whether that you do not mind. Natually I am going to supply you with a web page link with your net web site. Thanks with regard to giving.

  20. Sure, you can quote me, just put a link to my post. Although most of it is my own musing except for dates on classical music periods. I do have academic work online but that’s to do with church history basically. And when you’re done your own page, please message me at lcopple@igs.net. Thanks!

  21. Is there anywhere else I can get information about this? I’m thinking I might write my term paper on it.

    • This is where research skills come into play. There is no central source for contemporary classical but you may create it! Wikipedia and Google are helpful in checking contemporary classical, from there look up individual composers. I’ve noted a few you can look up. CBC Radio 3 also has some of these composers. And check movie scores – that’s where you’ll find people like Howard Shore. This type of research is a lot more work than gathering together work that’s already been done, but it is more rewarding in the end.
      Good luck. And if you do write your term paper on it, send me your paper, I’d love to read it.

  22. Mack Martini says:

    I was more than happy to search out this web-site.I needed to thanks on your time for this excellent read!! I positively enjoying each little little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to take a look at new stuff you blog post.

    I have been checking out a number of super sites over the last few weeks. I must say this post was a great read. Thank you.

  28. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  29. I must communicate my personal esteem for the kind-heartedness to get people who require assistance with this specific significant problem.

  35. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    • Sorry Erlinda, I don’t know. Usually if you click again on the same box it unlinks you. WordPress is tricky to deal with. And I’ve been spammed quite a bit as of late – which is strange since this is only a tiny part of my folk music blog. Are you using RSS feed or through the WordPress site? If it’s RSS, that’s even more a mystery to me. But I do thank you for reading, it means a lot to me that you are.

    • This blog is not a scholastic paper so no endnotes are required. Classical corner – Classical Gonq is my own journey of discovery as a radio host. And my sources are from all around me – fellow classmates, memories of high school music class/orchestra/choir, finding composers via CBC’s music site, you tube and various film composers websites.
      And sometimes when you check out the composers’ works on YouTube, the side bar has other videos that are similar. First level ‘research’ isn’t like what you find in books. However, I do know how to do notations – I do have some of my scholarly research online (just not on music, it’s on theology). A blog is just for personal musing.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

    • I had no idea that this page was listed in Yahoo News. For some reason one particular page on my blog has taken off in the RSS feed (but not the rest of the blog). If you write on a niche subject and lots of people comment on it, that’s probably why it would be picked up. I have no magic formula. Other than RSS feeds and try Google Analytics. Oh and tag your pages so that people find them faster in search engines

  134. excellent blog post, I’m posting it on FACEBOOK!

  135. Thank you for this put up!

  136. Many thanks to the put up I had no idea analytics could track blog comments so well. I’ll need to try this on my sites.
