Sounds from the Tall House - December 20/09

So, I finally figured out a way to embed the mp3's of the show to the blog. Check it out below. There are 2 parts - the 10am hour is Pt. 1 and the 11am hour is Pt. 2. For simplicity, I'm not going to edit the files, so the show is usually going to start a few minutes into Pt. 1 since CFRU's archive computer doesn't line up precisely with real time....close enough!
