    This is a personal gesture of that astronaut. I’d like to remind you of music that was recorded and sent into space for the possibility of extraterrestial space traveler’s discovery. In 1977 Voyager was launched and has music as well as greetings from earch in 55 different languages. The music included some of my favorite classics; Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, Beethoven’s 5th, and The Queen of the Night aria from Mozart’s Magic Flute. Below is the web link; http://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/spacecraft/music.html. You know that might be a good idea for a program; playing all of the classical music that was recorderd for the voyager mission.

  2. Frank,
    I’ll have to see if I can talk Ted Weiner (Music Director)into putting these pieces on my program back-to-back one morning. Thanks for the reminder and the link!
