Due to the unusual circumstances facing us all, it was necessary for Christ Cathedral to delay the previously-scheduled May 2020 weekend of inaugural events celebrating the return of their restored pipe organ, now rescheduled to the first weekend of January 2021. As a result, and also due to the limitations of the stay-at-home production process to which we have been limited, we've chosen to delay our own previously-scheduled "Hazel's Back" broadcast until later this year, allowing for a better overall program to be produced and placed in a more timely adjacency. As a result, instead of today's originally scheduled material we offer this 'encore' broadcast from the PIPEDREAMS Archive which originally aired during the week of 1/15/18.
