Playlist: Sing Out for September 9, 2009 - 10:00pm

Brief salutes to Beatles day, Otis Redding's birthday, and a not-so-brief look at the role of the mandolin in Gustav Mahler's music with guest master mandolinist HOWARD KADIS, who performed and toured with the San Francisco Symphony, and appears on three SF Symphony recordings including the just-issued Mahler's 8th Symphony. With Kadis as our guide, we tour various Classical and Baroque recordings featuring the mandolin.
