Beethoven

If Google has not already alert­ed you to the fact, we are hap­py to inform you that today is the 245th anniver­sary of Lud­wig Von Beethoven’s bap­tism! There is no record of his birth, although it is gen­er­al­ly accept­ed to be Decem­ber 16, 1770. Today’s pro­gram on our Main stream is all Beethoven in hon­or of the big 245!
