Episode 51: Concerts: A Listening Review

Sunday, July 1st, 2018 Romantic, Contemporary, Concerts | Comments

This week's episode is a little different. Instead of our normal historical perspective, we are talking about attending concerts or listening to music in our modern world and how audiences perceive what they hear! We hope you'll humor us in this little experiment. Let us know what you think by emailing or posting on our Facebook page!
