"The cello has been gifted by some of the greatest composers of music to be the voice of their innermost thoughts and feelings.  It's almost as if I get to be the voice of Brahms, Elgar, Dvorak and Strauss each time I play their music.  I'm cellist Zuill Bailey.  As a classical music listener, you are an important voice on Public Radio.  When you support your station, you make it possible for all of your favorite composers to speak, and to speak well.  Please call or go online, and thank you."
