Episode Seven: 21.2 MB
Just a short show this week owing to me being very busy with producing a new demo CD and so my show prep time has been much shorter. However we get to hear compostions from Chang-Ryool Lee, Guy Bacos and the Overall boys. And also some of the demo songs that I've put on my new demo CD. I discuss the topic of SA CD's as the new up and coming audio format. (By the way .. it looks like the file got corrupted when I first uploaded the podcast, so apologese to those that tried to download but couldn't get it.
Happy 4th of July to all those Americans out there.
