    Mr. Vollrath, I am 75 and usually sleep in my easy chair because of my back and legs and sometimes I forget to turn off the television set. Last night was just such an evening. About 3 AM this morning I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I heard this beautiful instrument being played. You sir, are one talented fiddle player. Let me rephrase that if I may. What turns a fiddle into a Stradivarius is not how it is made or who made it, but the person playing the instrument. I heard you play country, I heard you play modern. In fact, I heard you play just about every song I still remember and you played them impeccably well. Sir, you most certainly have been given a talent from God himself. Thank you for sharing your talent with us, the rest of the world. God richly bless you. Dennis Zinke Hello Dennis and thank you for the kind words. I'm wondering how you heard my music in front of your TV. What channel was it being played on?
