Someone asked Jay to name one composer whose music he would take with him to a desert island. He names him (Bach). He also says farewell to Marcello Giordani, the Italian tenor, and Jessye Norman, the American soprano. We also get an opera overture, a Beethoven overture, some Gershwin—and “Take This Job and Shove It.” Quite a menu, quite a program.

Tracks played:

Bach, Prelude in C major, Book I, “The Well-Tempered Clavier”

Chopin, Etude in C major, Op. 10, No. 1

Nicolai, Overture to “The Merry Wives of Windsor”

Gershwin, “I Loves You, Porgy” from “Porgy and Bess”

Beethoven, Triple Concerto

Coe, David Allan, “Take This Job and Shove It

Betta, Marco, “Amuri mancatu

Trad., “Give Me Jesus
