  1. My Music 101 teacher way back when was a musician in a performance by John Cage. The orchestral instruments were radios Two musicians were stationed at each radio. One to twirl the volume and the other to twirl the station control. Mr. Cage conducted. After the performance my teacher said to Mr. Cage that every time his radio had its volume turned down, he was conducted to turn to a station, and vice versa. Conductor Cage told him that he was the Angel Gabriel on the roof of the cathedral. People seldom could see him, but he was there to trumpet the end.
