I read Michael Arlen's "Hell Said the Duchess", a pleasing mix of Wilkie Collins, Evelyn Waugh, P.G. Wodehouse and Charles Williams. Lately I read or hear things about Michael Arlen on the radio or in unlikely print places. I will read more of his novels.

I listened to a good radio interview on Radio NZ with the band the Great North. The station had a commercial for an upcoming live performance of Gorecki's Second. I like that symphony, but the time zone difference would make that a dawn patrol too early even for very-early-me.
