Are You Weary of the Woes of the World?

Troop escalation in Iraq…the likelihood of a U.S. attack on Iran…43 million people in the US with no health insurance…privatized vote counting…climate change…New Orleans’ residents still homeless….had enough for an hour or so?

If you, like I, need an occasional break from the “fresh hell”* that is our daily fare, I recommend you take time to listen to an hour of From the Top. This is a wonderful program featuring talented youthful musicians. There’s a big dollop of humor, too.

In Northern California, it’s broadcast at 9 am on Sunday mornings at KDFC, 102.1 FM. To find out if it’s broadcast in your area, check From the Top Radio Stations. If not, go to From The Top's Radio Show Archive and mosey around, using your computer to listen to a show.

Yesterday morning after posting about the likelihood of a U.S. attack on Iran, I tuned in to this wonderful show while lying on the floor and laughed at a young cellist’s efforts to play classical music for a kindergarten class. Instead of “The Swan,” they wanted the theme music from Spiderman!

*Every morning, as I check the news online, I’m reminded of
Dorothy Parker's famous line, “What fresh hell is this?”
