  1. I do so enjoy and learn so much from your Radio Shows and the background music that you choose to play is simply beautiful. You are giving a great service and education to many. I think I told you that when I was studying piano and pschology at the University of Wisconsin the pschiatrist took a group of us to a mental hospital to find that they had the patients playing in a orchestra there at the hospital. This was the summer of 1955 and I was so impressed that I sent a letter to Catherine Dycus who was head of the Music Department for the City of Newport News and told her how music can enhance the concentration and health of students. So I certainly admire the work you are doing on a regular basis and do so believe in what you are doing, Madeline. A couple of years ago I was in a poetry class with Catherine Dycus who now is over 90 years old and she brought me the very letter from 1955 that I had sent to her. I was blown over by that. Thanks again for all you are doing. And must recently thank you for letting us enjoy the opera with you for we had no idea that they were available. Looking forward to your future blogs and the operas to come.
