Audio Samples

Listen to P.D.Q. Bach:  WTWP Classical Talkity-Talk Radio:  The Hearer’s Digest Condensed Version.  This Condensed Version gives you the intangible essence of the original recording in one small, easy-to-swallow capsule summary. The hyper folks at Hearer’s Digest have created this sample by slicing, dicing, and splicing, until it somewhat resembles excerpts of the original recording that are “severely truncated, but shorter.”
