WCRB surprise

I was quite surprised this morning to hear a symphony on WCRB by Freidrich Wilhelm 
Herschel, better known as Sir William Herschel, and discoverer of the planet Uranus.  I knew 
that Herschel was a musician who did astronomy at night as a hobby (until his discovery 
won him an appointment as court astronomer to King George III).  What surprised me was 
that WCRB departed to that extent from its usual playlist.  I've done my share of criticizing 
WCRB in this forum for its pop-radio style tight playlist, so it's only fair for me to cheer when 
they do something nice.

The symphony was in the style of Mozart and Haydn, since it was a product of its time.  But 
it was pleasant to listen to and deserves to be in WCRB's regular repetoire.
