For ten years I co-produced (with Chris Wilson & Christopher David Trentham)
the monthly CD review segment Audiofile, which ran from 1997 to 2010.
And I have contributed a number of segments since then. So I was honored and
pleased when TWO producer Greg Gordon asked me to produce a special
thirty-minute segment for the show. As it was to air the week between
Christmas & New Year's he requested more of a Holiday than Xmas slant.
I think I came up with just the right mix, and hope you agree.

This Way Out airs on over 200 stations around the world, and more
information can be found at their website, www.ThisWayOut.org.
You can also listen or download the segment here.
