Random piano music

Please stop with the random music that suddenly starts on all kinds of inappropriate times. I literally had to turn off the Covid episode after 8 minutes, the music was annoying and misplaced. Other than that, I love you all. Cheers from Norway

From Norway

There’s no substitute! I almost cried when I listened to today’s episode. We all pray for Nov 3. Biden2020!
This is just king. There is no substitute, BUT:

I do not want to be cynical, but today has been one of my better days, and I have to say I really hope it will stay like this for at least 20 more days!
