I WAS MESMERIZED BY IT.

I CALL, LIKE,THE CLASSICAL STATION

AND I SAID, "IT WAS ONFROM 4:15 A.M. TO 4:23 A.M.

"AND I KNOW IT WAS BECAUSE...I FORGET THE NAME OF IT.

"I THINK IT WAS CALLED

"SOMETHING LIKE 'THE FLYINGSQUIRREL SONATA.'"

BUT I NEVER GOT IT.

BUT I'M SORT OFA ROCK AND ROLL KIND OF GUY...
