Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta POT-LUCK By B'ARCY RICKARD Mrs. K. MucDonald of Hie Lclhbridgo Writers' Workshop Is the guest Pol-Luck columnist this week. This isn't whal you think il Is: hut, I presume you will see Ihe resemblance after I re- count a incidents (or should say, relative to my search for dreamy mus- ic. Have you ever wished lo re- lax lo some soft, .soothing, .swing sounds, and turned to Hie radiu in search of siimc, only to have a cacophony of sound come hurtling out at you from (he lilllc black box (or wliat- everj, causing you to jump a loot and anticipate heart fail- ure before your nerveless fing- ers can turn il tiff. Well We have a at another sta- tion. Somebody, a farm hand presumably, is milking a 'Jer- sey and the swishing soimd ac- companying the operation is quite in order. Only, you know very that il is not while, foamy milk you hear but the exper swishing of maraciis. Next, Ihe Jersey evidently objects to the operation and kicks over the bucket with a loud bang. What's that? Oh, yes, Hie ixiraission disc. We might as well hear whal happens next. 'Hie lured man proceeds lo Ihe house followed by a dozen or so starved cats or are those squeals and caterwauls violins? However, lliey soon begin to purr with pleasure (the eal.s, I mean) as they lap up the milk.

Thai's what he thinks: other cats (more violins) are after him in full cry; and here, you listen only long enough to hear the title. Which is believe it or not. Midnight Reverie. Jn despair, you turn to a fam- iliar stalion where you know ynu can find peace and calm; and now you are regaled with sweet, natural voices raised in praise and harmony and you let the, melody pour over you like perfumed water. This Is real music for you to relax and enjoy. You don't need lo wait lo hear the lille: you know full well il is back to The Bible Hour. And so to dreams.
