Episode 336: By Invitation
Opportunities come in all sorts of ways, from a casual invitation all the way through the engraved kind that comes by snail mail. Sometimes you accept and sometimes you decline, but you’ll never have a story to tell if you decline.

The subject of our theme this time comes from an email invitation I received to listen to an online streaming broadcast of the Northwestern Wind Ensemble. It was from Mallory Thompson, the director of both the Northwestern Wind Ensemble and the Northshore Band. It was a simple invitation and it was specific… the event had a specific time and it was a live stream. I had to be there at a specific time with all of my technology ready to go. Well, I was.

Wind & Rhythm has many homes for our weekly broadcast.  
24 stations now carry the show, but it all started in 2008 at the University of Tulsa’s KWTU. We think of Classical 88.7 as home, our “Mothership”.
