Hi DJ Ria!
4:03pm Ria (host)
Hello Mr Malcontent! Trust you've been doing well?
Eh, good enough. Thank you. How have you been doing, Our Absolutely Favorite DJ Ria?!?
4:11pm Ria (host)
Haha thank you :) I've had a bit of a crazy week, so I'm still recuperating :)
Uh oh. Good crazy or mental hospital crazy?? If the second one, Me Too!!
4:16pm Ria (host)
Not quite mental hospital, but maybe psychiatrist?? Definitely not the good kind of crazy haha, more stress than anything
4:17pm Ria (host)
I needed a bit of famous comforting symphonies to cheer all of us up, hence the theme today!!
Oh. Darn it. That's too bad. "This too shall pass" "you are strong enough to handle it" and "take a break for classical music"!!! I hope things will soon be less stressful for you! If you need mental health help, get it and be proud!
Mental health care should only have positive praise. Maybe one day society will be smart and caring and not dumb and nasty. I can dream, can't I?!?
Excellent theme! Brilliant music!
4:33pm Ria (host)
Thankfully, it wasn't all that bad, just a minor fire in the house, and I've spent the last 2 days de-smoking things. Enough to put anyone off barbeque :D
4:34pm Ria (host)
Although, I agree with your statements about mental health, the mind should be taken care of as much as the body is.
WHUT. WOW. WHUT. SCARY.
Great now I want BBQ.
I hope everyone is safe and sound.
4:39pm Ria (host)
Yes, thanks. Smoke alarms did their jobs well.
4:45pm Ria (host)
"Great now I want BBQ." LOL.
I hope one day I get the mental health care I obviously desperately need.
Hey, you kooky kids! What's up?
I don't know if listening to classical music actually makes you smarter but it always makes me feel smarter.
Just settin fires and lookin for my last marble. How'S DanS?!?
As the Bee Gees would say, I'm stayin' alive.
That's a really important piece of music DanS
I luv BERLIOZ
Wow! I can't wait to hear this.
5:08pm Ria (host)
Symphonies with themes?? Berlioz had to feature as STAR.
Nicely done, DJ Ria!
Since I know nothing about classical music, it's nice to hear the description of what the composer is trying to achieve in the composition.
5:36pm Ria (host)
Yeah, I find it gives you a starting point from where to experience what the composer intended.
5:36pm Ria (host)
Thanks, Mr Malcontent!
All the thanks goes to you DJ RIA!!
Thanks for the music, DJ Ria. All the best to you. Don't go changin', MrM!
DanS, Stay Golden!!
DJ Ria, more Symphonie Fantastique next week! Many thanks and kind regards to you!!
This part plays every time I walk anywhere. I might need an exorcism too.
