I'm a little surprised not to have seen this posted to the list, but I
think it's relevant and interesting for people dealing with audio
documentaries, radio pieces, and those that love what the Kitchen
Sisters call "lost and found sound." And they're going to be there
too. Mostly this conference is for radio/audio producers, but I'm
going and looking forward to what I hope will be a feast for the ears.
FYI in any case.
