I too request, with vigor, that you consider having Mr Story and Mr. Reed read the play in its entirety. I will put it on my calendar!

What an amazing piece - you have captured something in these people that grabs us by the heartstrings.
Mr. Reed and Mr. Story really do need to record Waiting for Godot for radio...they still have "it" - wonderful actors.
Adene O'Kelly, too. Excellent. Thank you so much,

Hey Cynthia,

It is the "The Merry Widow Waltz” from Franz Lehar’s opera The Merry Widow.

Thanks for listening!
