Clouds reflected in the dc

During a piano concerto on the radio...



Dad: Did Andre Watts ever win a Cliburn honey?

Mom: Not that I know of.

Me: What's a Clibern?

(silence)

Me: Dad, what's a Clibern?

Dad: A contest.

mom and dad may have told you about cliburn after the snippet ends, but just in case....i'll tell you all i know. cliburn was an american pianist from somewhere in texas. a real, red-blooded, beast with lond hair and a soft polite accent that made him sound like a hick. anyway...not sure about the dates here, but there was an annual compettition held in russia for pianists. cliburn's win was unheard of.
