For your education and edification, to weed out the undesirables from our community; the teenagers and the Dicks, and to keep everything clean and unsullied by grotesque graffiti, spit and skateboarding, I offer you this purely Classic show full of Classical Music written by Classical Men of classical age. Well. Some of these pieces were written during the last century, so it’s still in keeping with the theme of the show. This, solemn, serious classical show. Enjoy, and keep your hands to yourselves.
I guess my math skills are pretty bad. There are FOUR installments to this Bachstravaganza, and this one brings us to about half done. Thank your lucky stars.
We end this Opus with the story of PDQ’s actual composing period, his relationship with Prince Fred and his cousin, Betty-Sue Bach, his death and burial, and finally, an interview of Peter Schickele, the discoverer of PDQ, by Tom Snyder. I can only hope, in some small way, that these podcasts aided in bringing the truth about J.S. Bach’s last and least son to the internet public.
This week, we see PDQ form a relationship with Prince Fred, and embark on a journey towards Wein Am-Rhein, where he will begin a musical career. We also hear from his unique musical instruments, and hear the opera, "Oedipus Tex."
