Show 072: What Recordings Shall Surface?

Today Listen Up! explores the dark shadows and empty hallways that contain soundscapes, littered with intrigue and a subtle whimsical optimism, along with sometimes slightly disturbing, portraits of the human condition.

Note: The first five minutes of the program are not here due to a technical issue when recording.
