St1 ivhy do editors have webbed feet 'l To stamp out burning ducks. Like the middle of production last week: "That '.1· 111y second call roday" said a perplexed colleague.

We've always had some subscriptions - roughly one for every 11vo hundred wpies available free. Even with a huge number of free distribution points. the mag gets snapped up fast. Some people prefer to pay for the luxury of not having to go and look. But it's rivo hundred free for every one paid. Always has been, and that's how it's going to stay. And yo11 can help keep it that way. as explained on page 34. Speaking or rumours, though, did you hear the one about WholeNote becoming a gla111011r 111aga:i11e'? Allan Pu Iker explains. in Quodlibet, on page 16.

"At a hundred times the rnst." we could have added. had we known. But that would cerwinly have stopped us in our trucks. Dream versions of things need lots of certain kinds nf foresight. and merciful blindness elsewhere. Our Cover Story this month. pnge 8. is an interview with someone rnnsistently good at turning "dream versions" of things into reality. And with the upcoming Me _ tamorphosis Festival. she's nt it again.

Tell us what you think. And a remarkable account of How I Met My Teacher by violinist Erika Raum, page 32. and much more besides.
