Jay begins with some music by precocious types: a Shostakovich piano trio, written when the composer was 17; the Mendelssohn Octet, written when the composer was 16 -- that sort of thing. Then he talks some politics. He also gets into the bees -- and the birds and the bees. (He tells a love story.) He ends with what he calls “probably the most glorious shout I know” -- a Christmas song.
