I always say that if I ever write my autobiography, the title will be In Radio, There Are No Snow Days. Part of the deal for broadcasters is that neither snow, nor rain, nor – well, you know the drill – will keep us from getting to the studio in bad weather to tell you not to go out in it. And to keep you company when you turn on the radio.
But if I did get to hunker down and stay home on a snow day, I started thinking about what music I’d like to listen to. Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, maybe, with all the sleigh bells. Or maybe Brahms’s First, just because I love it. What about you? What’s your idea of perfect music for a snow day?
