Arturo asked:
Is it pronounced Car KNEE gie  or Car NEG(like in negative) gee Hall?, I've
heard both, one person explained to me that the KNEE pronunciation is the
"Americanized-English language" way.



In the classical end at WCLV, it's always been CAR nay gee (or Car NAY gee).
Also one of our sposors is named Carnegie, not to mention Carnegie Avenue
here in Cleveland
