Child`s away, and time to listen the show. Hello Terre from germany...
  Sat. 5/14/11 3:28pm Tom L.:

Did you know that Wikipedia describes Titus A. as "lo-fi"? They sound pretty hi-fi to me when I play them on my hi-fi. Go figure.

  Sat. 5/14/11 5:37pm Robert:

Very engaging music. When you're not there, music tends to be a background thing, but this performance thrusts itself into the foreground regardless, right over the air or wire.
  Sat. 5/14/11 5:37pm Listener Jumpy in Brooklyn:

Go Terre!
