Yes, we know…Antonio de Cabezon born in 1510 has his 500th Anniversary in 2010!

By way of excuse, all of Mr. Barone’s huge editorial support staff was on vacation in Majorca when this show was produced, as was Barone’s brain. Since he was born in the 1900s, he still is having trouble making the transition into the 21st century. Apologies to Cabezon’s friends and heirs, and thanks to all the eagle-eared listeners who have brought this to his/our, now very self-conscious, attention. Perhaps we should start a weekly contest: Where’s the Error?!
