LISTen: An LISNews.org Program -- Episode #159

This week's episode is light in recognition of the ALA Annual hang over. We feature a music break by northeast Ohio band Antiquitous. The song "Ed and Elaine's Promenade" is from their upcoming album "Nexus of the Ley Lines" and was composed by Mister Engineer. Antiquitous describes themselves with: "New melodies from ancient voices for a modern world."

A more substantial episode will come once the ALA Annual hang over has passed. A link dump has been posted in the mean time.
