Hope I’m not going too highbrow with this one. Music educator Karl Haas, who for many years hosted the syndicated radio program Adventures In Fine Music, was born on this day in 1913. When I was working second shift, I would listen to his show every day. What I liked about it was that he could relate to the listener, whether the person was an erudite individual or a blue-collar knucklehead like me. He started each show with the first minute or so of the 2nd Movement of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata #8, "Pathetique," which he played live before each show. It’s played here by Vladimir Ashkenazy.
