Transmission 3411

*"Spring in all its splendour rises" and RFW rises to the occasion with this seasonal salute including music from Johann Strauss II featuring Christine McIntyre, Mel Brooks, Tom Waitts, Antonio Vivaldi, The Olivia Tremor Control, Wendy Carlos, Sonny Boy Williamson Sr., The Lemon Boys and Twenty Sixty Six And Then!

T3411 is a 59.1mb 128k mp3 1:04:37 in length made loud to be played louder!

"You Can Never Hold Back Spring"


*Taken from Richard Genee's lyrics to Voices Of Spring (a.k.a. Frühlingsstimmen), the 1882 composition by Johann Strauss II.

**The poster is from Micro-Phonies, the 1945 Three Stooges short featuring Christine McIntyre performing Voices Of Spring while Curly as Señorita Cucaracha, Larry as Señor Mucho and Moe as Señor Gusto  pull a Milli Vannili. It does not get any funnier!

***Springtime For Hitler is from the equally hilarious movie by Mel Brooks, The Producers. While the Broadway musical and the 2005 theatrical remake were both admirable, nothing can touch the 1968 original starring Gene Wilder, Zero Mostel and Dick Shawn.

****Spring or the vernal equinox usually occurs in the Northern Hemisphere on March 20th.
