I wouldnt say nothing. Id say they know what they hear
and know what they are told. Everybody knows Beethoven
was deaf and every kid who plays recorder in school
can play Ode to Joy. So, people vote for it. Most
people have never heard of or read Testimony and have
no idea of the pressure Shotakovich lived and worked
under. Thats a testimony to how little work the
station does educating its audience. Not the audiences
know-how.
