No Music Day

I heard Bill Drummond (most notably of the British avante garde pop group KLF) talking last night on NPR about his relationship to music and why he started the No Music Day. I have also found an article from the NY Times that is an interesting read for more information. It turns out that No Music Day is specifically on November 21st because this day is the eve of the day of Saint Cecelia, who is the patron saint of musicians and music. So, my fellow audiophiles, turn your music off if it is on, keep it off if it is isn't, and think about how truly amazing music is in our lives on this annual day of music-fasting. Oh, and check out No Music Day's website for more information and to post your pledge and/or comment.
