Exciting day at Birdland Studios In Lansdale

Spent the afternoon at a recording for broadcast of a two hour radio show featuring live musicians and a poet/novelist.  4+ hours of work go into a two hour show.  Met some amazingly talented people and learned alot.  Took some great pictures which I will be sharing with all of you along with a write up in the next few days when I get everything together! Made some new friends too!
