Good Old Timey Country and Classical

How do you arrange two opposite genres of music? You don’t.

This week on the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour,  I just selected about 25 minutes of good old timey country music and then roughly tacked it right next to about 35 minutes of rad classical music. Bon Apetit
