105. Binge Answering

N2K_001bSome people binge drink. Others binge on television. Jay and Mona binged on listener questions. This third installment covers a number of musical issues: Is modern music worthwhile even if you want to cover your ears? Where does Brahms rank among the greats? Was Mark Twain’s quip about Wagner funny? What are some great movie scores?

They discuss the universities, how to inoculate kids against prevailing intellectual fashions, abortion, some grammar matters, beautiful buildings, and more. Mona gives a surprising hat tip to Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus.

Music from this week’s episode: From the Piano Trio in B major, Op. 8, by Johaness Brahms
