The Grammatical Willies
David Gunn
From radio station WGDR, willing promoters of the Wholesale Galyak Didactic Reunion, it's Episode 10 of Kalvos & Damian's New Music Sesquihour, broadcasting this week from radio station WGDR, Saturday afternoon home of Kalvos & Damian's New Music Sesquihour. It's July 29th, a Saturday, in fact the last Saturday this particular July will ever see. It is also the last day of continual daylight in Hammerfest, Norway, and hence today's program theme.

Next week -- and the following statement's future pluimperfect tense may be hard on some of our more linguistically discerning listeners and give them the grammatical willies -- Kalvos & Damian will have been happy to be have broughting be you "The Best of the Sesquihour, part 2," which will have can bringst listenable snippets from episodes 6 through 10. Following to be followed have be, a Sesqui-Bestoff will pit the finest bits from episodes 1 through 5 against those from episodes 6 through 10, followed by regional playoffs, and then the Sesquiseries, best three out of five to have being happy to have brought for be can, unless.

July 29th: a day of new music today, a day of timely death in years past. Moses died on July 29, 1981. Wait, I think this may not be the biblical guy. OK, never mind. King Offa of Mercia, Ladislas the first of Hungary, and especially Clyde Kay Maber of Kluckhohn each failed to answer his wake-up call on July 29th and hence the theme for today's program.

Today's episode of Kalvos & Damian's New Music Sesquihour is brought to you by all previous nine episodes of Kalvos & Damian's New Music Sesquihour in sequential ten-minute blocks. For example, this introduction and the 4.45 minutes of avant-chat which follow are sponsored by Episode 1. The sesquiquiz, which will pop up just as Arbitron figures indicate listenership tails off, is, or will be, or will have to have been -- curses on the future pluimperfect! -- be to have by Episode 5. And so on. Due to technical difficulties with humorless legal representatives, the musical road accident segment of the show, or le flambeau oriange, will not be heard this week. Instead, Kalvos & Damian are pleased to bring you the remainder of the show, sponsored by the remainder of the previously broadcast episodes of Kalvos & Damian's New Music Sesquihour, heard each week at this time from the New Music Sesquistudios in Plain ol' Vermont, and hence the theme for today's show.

And now, to help sort out this grammatical quagmire and also to cover in case we don't have a composer-o-the-week today, here's Kalvos.
