  •  On a NYC radio (4+ / 0-)

    station (can't remember whether it was BAI, QXR< KCR< or NYC) there was a show near midnight and the DJ (Allison Steele??? or someone else) always began by saying "that after silence, I like Bach best." Does that ring a bell with anyone or have I made it up? For ,me, the best of radio is a Red Sox game.

        Steele began her show by reciting poetry over Andean flute music, before introducing her show in her well-known sultry, smoky voice with,

            “The flutter of wings, the shadow across the moon, the sounds of the night, as the Nightbird spreads her wings and soars, above the earth, into another level of comprehension, where we exist only to feel. Come, fly with me, Alison Steele, the Nightbird, at WNEW-FM, until dawn.”

        She then made a transition to recordings of some of the more exceptional and experimental music being recorded at the time, as well as featuring the best of the familiar favorites of her audience.
