Monday morning once more and up to do stuff before having to do stuff...

Good skies...

The beast was in his headphones...

...recording music only podcasts...

...of its top ten acquisitions of January...




...and May...

...followed by today's classical piece which was the 1812 Overture - from this disc of the record I featured yesterday - I searched high and low for this in order to have my favourite recording on a CD...

Random record of the day, complete with surface noise, was this signed artifact from Bryan Ferrari...

Meanwhile, in the garden...


Prepped the back room for some work by nephew Ali...

...which sparked a new idea which would massively increase my storage capability in the room...

The postie came...


A 2CD set of 20th Century music - over 50 pieces featured...

...and this as, while reading my "Chronicle of Classical Music" re the very earliest existing scores, I was intrigued by the chat on Heinrich Isaac...

And an extremely tasty 7CD box, brand new, of Danish composer Holmboe's string quartets - which are favourably compared to those of both Shostakovitch and Bartok by the cognoscenti...

First thing, in the knowledge that the end of the month is fast approaching, I had a trawl through LPs released so far in June and managed to secure a few, meaning today's new acquisitions rose to 10...

...which made me happy...

In the evening, the daily call to my mum - still doing fine but still no sign of a release date...

A couple of "Berlin Station"s...

Then, time for bed...

Oh well...

Highlight of the Day : New acquisitions...
