Duration Show - Joshua Abrams, The Necks, Made to Break, etc.

Read "Duration Show - Joshua Abrams, The Necks, Made to Break, etc." reviewed by David Brown

This week, I'm interested in exploring duration. 100 years ago this month, Louis Armstrong made his first recordings with King Joe Oliver.

Tonight, we'll be ...
