A reader writes

(Blogger is really acting up: I've been trying to post this all day.)

One of my readers provided, via email, this response to my question on televising the Cav excerpt:
I think the reason they had the Cavalleria part in the Gala, and left in for the telecast, was that was the one opera Volpe knew as a child, having to sit there and turn over his grandmother's 78 records. It's been told to be the only opera recording she had, and he was the only one who had that "job."

So, makes sense, right? Part of the Volpe legend.
Yes, that makes perfect sense. Thanks!
