Maurice Ravel

Weekend of November 26, 2011

It's Back

Every time we air Maurice Ravel's Bolero, we get a lot of listener feedback. Some of you absolutely love it. Others absolutely hate it. We think anything that generates that much passion on either side is worth another look - and listen. Get ready to weigh in on the subject again. Bolero is back in today's show, from a concert in Dublin, Ireland.
