"From Here to Obscurity" February 15, 2008 INTERNET ONLY

(Week 110)

Another (surprise!) WHCL-free webcast of RADIOLA! on Live365. This week we delve into recordings (all available on CD) by worthy performers who merely happen not to be household names. Hockey tonight, Basketball next Friday, but perhaps I'll be broadcasting on air again on February 29. Until then, I'll be feeling pretty obscure.
