So we rolled a special set of aluminum Tiptoes, read the auspicious signs (you've got to understand how the tips point), and divined our first set of predictions.

It only makes sense. PBS, the most visible national broadcaster of classical-music-related programs, has decided to launch its own classical-music label.

But I was still curious about what all the brainiacs were up to.
