Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

One of ol’ Robbo’s Lenten abstentions is the giving up of listening to musick, but I would be remiss if I did not point out the fact that today is the anniversary of the birth, in 1685, of Johann Sebastian Bach.

The older I get, the more I am convinced that Bach was, simply put, the single greatest musickal genius in the entire history of Western Civilization.

So there.

Happy Birthday!
