Economy got you down? Listen to Classical Music!

From today's Independent (8/7/09) comes a story of how folks in Britain, stressed out by the dreary economy and even drearier weather, are turning to classical music on the radio for comfort and solace. (http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/classical/news/stressedout-listeners-turn-to-classical-1768510.html) We all know the benefits of classical music, how it inspires, entertains, and challenges us, and makes us better persons overall...but you can't deny it's also a great stress-buster. To paraphrase Pete Townshend, guitarist and songwriter for the rock band The Who, great music "won't make you forget all your troubles, but it will let you dance all over them."

So, turn on the radio to 89.5 FM...and turn it up!
