Classical music parrot fashion

We leave the radio on for our two parrots while we're not home. Not to BBC Radio 3, but the local San Francisco equivalent of top forty classical music, KDFC. They start laughing (if parrots laugh) when the announcers come on with their inane chatter. I once heard them (announcer, not parrot) say: "That Mozart! What a great guy!". However, I've found that their (the parrots') favorite musician is Ornette Coleman. Something about the sound of his music makes them very happy and talkative. And, you won't ever find that on KDFC
Ornette Coleman was Favourite Stoned Listening and also features in Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. Now read about a classical radio presenter who made his mistakes with style.
