October 3, 1994. The debut of Mixed Up Class, featuring Bay Area newcomer Mimi Dye's viola adaptations of sacred songs of the Abbess Hildegard of Bingen, a medieval mystic. Add the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi on the following day, October 4, and you have a generic holy man. Round out the offerings with a few representative madmen.
Here is an informal playlist, until the official one is available for cross checking.
