Humorist Anna Russell, aged 94, dies.
Advertisements [?]
The classically trained singer delighted audiences with her droll and irreverent examinations of classical music.

Okay, I can't be the only one here to have heard Anna Russell's thoughts on Wagner's Ring Cycle ("You remember the Rhine, don't you?"). Classic Arts Showcase occasionally airs clips of her talks, and of course some of the recordings should be available.

Her spirit lives on!
