David Garland, Host
David Garland hosts Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons on WQXR.
This week at a dinner party I met Pam, who left the get-together early. I'm a night owl myself (on the air weekend evenings, after all), but Pam told us that she regularly gets up at 4 am each day. She feels that rising early lets her "own the day," and gives her invaluable time to think and get things done.
But, she told us, she has an unfulfilled wish: she'd love to be able to attend an opera performance at 8 am, when she's most alert and receptive.
Maybe there are other people like Pam. Do you think morning concerts are a good idea? Would you attend? Are any musicians awake at 8 am?
