Furuhata Ninzaburo & Opening Theme

Furuhata Ninzaburo was a great detective show, comparable to Columbo in the basic premise, but it had a more philosophical and dandyish protagonist, brilliantly played by Mazakazu Tamura.

Prayers also to the victims in Las Vegas and the families.

Sunday Music & Hildegard von Bingen & O Aeterne Deus

First antiphone with psalm 109/110 from the vesper “o vis aeternitatis.” at Abbey St. Hildegard.

Sung by Schola of the Benedictines Abbey St. Hildegard, Eibingen. Directed by Johannes Berchmanns Göschl and Sr. Christiane Rath OSB. Recorded 1997. Thanks to Youtuber prosepp.

I just stumbled upon St. Hildegard. Quite the character in many ways.

R.I.P. Walter Becker &

Walter Becker, February 20, 1950 – September 3, 2017.

A deep bow to my blog mentor Nightsky Radio, who made me notice the artistry of the Dan. “Deacon Blues” now vies with Herbie Hancock’s “Tell Me a Bedtime Story” for the status of greatest song in the world. But even when I didn’t fully appreciate “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” like I do now, I always liked it, and it is one of Walter’s (Pretzel Logic, 1974). Also, I never featured it here on channel WDYDFAE before, so . . .
