Ring in the new


Buffalo's classical station, WNED-FM, celebrated New Year's Day by playing Leonard Pennario. The recording they chose was Louis Moreau Gottschalk's "Grand Scherzo."

Don't believe me? You can view the playlist here.

So there.

Surely this will be a good year!

I always love when something Leonard Pennario happens and I had nothing to do with it. The best was when he got the brick in the Buffalo Cultural Walk of Fame and there was this big ceremony and I missed it because nobody told me. Pennario would have gotten a kick out of that.

He also would have loved that he got in along with Rick James!

I could not find a YouTube video of Pennario playing the "Grand Scherzo" but "The Union" up above is not bad music with which to begin your New Year.

It will be a good one!
