Classical gets a pass 

Why does The Coast operate on the assumption that most of your readers are not interested in classical music.

To the editor,

You operate on the assumption that most of your readers are not interested in classical music and you're probably right. Hence I don't complain that you don't review classical CDs regularly. And Sean Flinn did a great job on his story "Peter Allen's brainstorm" (Sep. 25, 2008) about my friend Peter Allen's Hurricane Juan Concerto. But when you asked people to pick their record of the year for your Discs of the Year issue (Nov. 27, 2008), you could have asked more people who were likely to pick a classical CD. And in your Best of Halifax issue (Nov. 13, 2008), you should have had a classification for Best Classical Store. Since the demise of Sam the Record Man, the only store with an adequate supply of classical records is The Madrigal. And where did I pick up your publication? At The Madrigal!
