Show Notes

Episode #2's theme is "spiritual music," which, like the other themes we're going to do, is totally up to the interpretation of the show's three hosts/selectors. Since the first episode ended up being well over two hours in length, we tried to keep things a little more concise this time around, but it still wound up being over an hour and a half. If you want to hear the full version, you get two extra songs and a lot more discussion, but if you'd prefer a tight one-hour podcast, there's an edited version available as well.
