Weirdness. As I was driving home from Iolanta and Bluebeard's Castle, I turned on the radio to the local fine music station and heard...Bluebeard's Castle! Just the tail end of it; it was over before I reached home. But it was the "live" performance, with Margaret Juntwait telling who was taking a bow, etc. How can this be?

The friend I went with thought of two possibilities:
  • The radio broadcast was a recording, sent out just minutes after the live performance, to allow some engineer to bleep out any naughty word that might be uttered during an interview but was not permissible over the radio.
  • The Met doesn't have the technology to handle radio and simulcast transmissions simultaneously.
