Peter Schickele is a composer, conductor, and performer of music.
He has recorded several albums as PdqBach.
He currently has a Saturday morning music explanation program
on National Public Radio. http://www.schickelemix.org/
His music has fun with the stodginess of typical classical music, and the pretentions of contemporary music (after all, when he uses "prepared" instruments, you're supposed to laugh.)
He is a very funny man, who writes fun classical music.
