David Ogden Stiers love of music.
David was a gifted conductor. Back in 1987, if memory serves, he was the guest conductor at the symphony my mother played for for over 30 years. As a lover of both classical music, and M*A*S*H, it was a concert I couldn't miss. Being the child of a member of the orchestra, my mom being 2nd violin, I was able to go back stage after D.O.S was done. He was very pleased that I was not only a big fan of C.E Winchester III, but also a classical music fan. He was even more pleased that I recognized the encore piece that the pianist played, though it wasn't a well known piece. I asked if it was his idea to have Charles love classical music
He said that it was one of the main requirements he had demanded when asked to do the show. I suspect that the conducting of the Korean musicians was also his idea.
D.O.S was approachable, friendly, and easy to talk to, a stark contrast to the character he played so well. D.O.S was the polar opposite politically, and I'm sure would've supported F.D.R. Even though he said he had to "suffer through 4 F.D.R elections in one episode.
