Smiling… Part 1 of 2. Happy Opening Day of Baseball.

Take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd…

A short post for tonight.  Tomorrow is opening day of baseball.  If you read this early enough, you can catch the WFMT 98.7 in Chicago (or steaming live over the internet).  WFMT is a classical music station in Chicago.  I never much was a classical music listener.  I do have eclectic listening tastes.  I’m an avid Jazz listener, Flamenco, all sorts of Pop, Rock, even Hip-Hop, Country, Blues, and R & B.  I’ve played a bunch of classical music in symphonic and concert bands, but I never was much a listener.  That changed when I moved to Chicago.  I stumbled across 98.7 WFMT while commuting, and it offered a reprieve from the traffic.

Now, every year I make sure to listen to WFMT on Baseball’s opening day.  They play all sorts of baseball themed classical music and stories.  Its so fun.  I know this is not fitness related, but listening to WFMT makes me smile.  I love when they play James Earl Jones narration of Casey’s at the Bat.  Smile.

Smiling is important!

It is late, and I have some early work to do tomorrow.  So,  I’ll save the rest of the post for later this week.

In the meantime, tune in Monday 6:00 AM – 9:00 AM CST, listen in to WFMT to hear some baseball classical music.  I sure hope they do not change the schedule on me, and don’t play it.
