Silent nights

Our home stereo gets used mostly for movie-watching sound, and sometimes I listen to talk radio. We rarely use it for listening to CDs anymore. Proof: I just opened the three-disc changer to see what was readily available for my hearing pleasure and found one spot empty and the other two spots each containing a Christmas CD. I closed the changer, turned off the stereo and opened up the Said the Whale folder on the computer.
