Episode 298: It’s Been a Very Good Year
Every once in a while it is smart to take a look over your shoulder. Looking back on the 6th season of Wind & Rhythm has brought all 50 episodes to mind. Each had an individual theme with names like “A Percy Grainger Walkabout”, “Dark Journeys”, “Earth, Our Island Home”, and one of my favorites “He Called Us a Menace.”  In the past year we have heard more than 575 works of wind band music which, if you heard all of the shows in a marathon listening party would take about 50 hours to hear it all. Wow!
