Musician, broadcaster Karl Haas dies at 91

They say the death of an old man is no tragedy. But I just heard the news on NPR (accompanied by the Pathetique Sonata, of course), and I got weepy and had to pull over.

I grew up with Karl Haas on the radio. I remember listening to Adventures in Good Music in Brisbane when I was 12 years old. I was already knee-deep in classical music, but he engendered in me the desire to dive into deeper waters. I loved playing Guess the Composer most of all.

Thank you, Mr. Haas, from a long-time listener.
