Violins on Television

Original post made by Emily Litella on Aug 17, 2011

What's all this fuss I keep hearing about violins on television? Why don't parents want their kids to see violins on television? I thought the Leonardo Bernstein concerts were just lovely, now, if they only show violins on television after ten o'clock at night, the little babies will all be asleep and they won't learn any music appreciation. They'll learn to play guitars, and bongo drums and go to Africa and join these rock'n roll outfits and they won't drink milk! I think there should be more violins on television and less game shows, it's terrible!

I think most parents prefer to see their precious babies watching WWF and American Idol, so they can sit with them and "take it all in". Can't you tell by a lot of society's behavior of late?

I'm sorry I am completely lost on this subject. What do violins have to do with being seen on tv? I can't play a note on any instrument to save my life, but I sure enjoy all music. ( except Rap, maybe)
