James Holmes et al. in on a trip from Manhattan to Hyannis - 20 December, 1994

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 260:

On the car radio, between Manhattan and Hyannis, much finer stations than in New York. Always the guessing game: What's this? Is it Mahler or Bruckner? Etc. A Haydn symphony bored us. JH says, "We just don't need Haydn anymore."
