My cable system carries music channels by some outfit called Music Choice. The grab bag one is “Sounds of the Season”. During December, you get Christmas songs. In late October, it’s all Halloween all the time. The rest of the year is somewhat less defined, or at least I find their schemata difficult to determine.
Today, for no reason, I decided to turn on Sounds of the Season. It is all music apparently deemed suitable for the approach of Oktoberfest: mostly German stuff, along with some Viennese dances and a polka apparently sung in Polish. All very pleasant, all very well-chosen tracks.
Just what I wanted today, without even knowing it.
