Happy Birthday, Gustav!

No, not the hurricane.  Holst.

Tomorrow marks the 134th anniversary of the birth of Gustav Holst (1874-1934).  As Tim Horn well knows, Holst was born in Cheltenham, England and attended the Cheltenham Grammar School as a child.

Why not listen to The Planets today in his honor?

    So, were you the only person in the world listening to “The Planets” whilst drinking English tea during the broadcast of the Alabama game with the sound turned down?

    Well, that 35-point spread was as wide as the distance from Mars to Jupiter!
