Some things are too good to be true. This is one of them.
Fortunately, it's true.
Dick Strawser is the music director of my local classical music/NPR radio station WITF. I have always found his comments and music selections to be reliably interesting, entertaining, and informative.
And now, Dr. Dick has a blog!
The blog looks like it will be a lot of fun. Dr. Strawser's introductory post was rather on the light side, and further posts have been a mix of informative and nostalgic. Dr. Strawser is a good writer. He manages to include a good mix of anecdote with useful, interesting information about music and the world of music. His post, "Of Beans and Bruckner" is particularly fun.
Unlike most blog posts, Dick's posts are not short. Most of them read like a full article. I think it's great that he has chosen to carefully compose posts that are well written. Daily blog writing has many drawbacks. For this reason, I may be reconsidering my own blogging routine. Strawser's blog posts are hefty enough to surpass the length of most blogs' weekly output, and it takes time to read them. But it's worth it.
I'm still catching up. Next on the list for me is Up Close and Kind of Personal with Gustav Holst's "The Planets."
