Is The Metropolitan Opera still on radio? /half

That was on Saturdays.

I know, because Dad was a serious opera fan! Even though we lived in The Middle Of Nowhere, PA, Dad religiously tuned in to the Saturday Met broadcasts - “Brought to you by Texaco! You can trust your car to the man who wears the star!”

One time, Dad wanted to work out in the garden, which was a good 50 yards from the house, and 30 yards from the nearest working electrical socket. He strung a bunch of extension cords together to get the radio near enough so he could hear it, but it wasn’t loud enough. So he took one of the garbage cans, laid it on its side, and put the radio in it, with the open end pointed at the garden!

The radio station that broadcast it, WITF in Hershey, also introduced me to the amazing Anna Russell, whose “Guide to the Ring of the Nibelung” is one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard - “And here Siegried meets Guntrune Gebich. She’s the first woman he’s ever come across who ISN’T his aunt……I’m not making this up!”
