Thank you so much, Mary.
First, let me say that I for one would love your reading of the Nutcracker and 
look forward to that project.  I've always wanted to know what that story is 
really about from start to finish.  As many of us, I know the music quite well 
so it would be fabulous to have descriptions.

I'm glad you like our chimes.  Maria actually steered me in that direction.  
Here I am looking all over for sound effects and she says so casually that I 
should simply create my own.  Okay.  So I did--and plan to do more when 

Next, regarding how I added the music.  I learned the rudiments of how to mix 
and have been working hard at trying to get levels and such just right.  It 
takes quite awhile but I love the result.  As Kai with his water and loops, I 
think it adds a level of audio interest.

Looking forward to your next show and wishing you a wonderful season.  I'm sure 
we'll catch up on the list, though.

Oh, by the way, I can't seem to get this Juice catcher to put the shows in the 
right folder on my computer.  Maybe I'll just rename the folder.  <grin>  I 
thought it'd straighten up and fly right once I changed the settings in Libsyn 
but...  <sigh>

  That was a great podcast, very enjoyable and thought provoking. I am sure a 
lot of people can relate to your wild travel experiences! The chimes used for 
separating topics are so lovely, and I love the music you added. Did you do 
that with sound layering or multi-tracking? I would guess Sound Forge lets you 
add a recording to another recording, or put music in the background while 
you're recording your discussion. I am looking at wave pad; I think that's the 
name of the program I downloaded. Is anyone else using that? I've got a project 
in mind which would require sound layering. I thought it would be fun to read 
the story of the nutcracker (am waiting for the book from Seedlings braille 
books); it's about 78 braille pages, but I thought that in addition to just 
reading it, why not put music from the Nutcracker ballet behind the appropriate 
parts of the book? It might work out, and it might not, but it sure looks like 
it would be fun to do, and I'd need to do sound layering so things could be 
properly timed. I could do it with a mixer but it would be sort of a mess, and 
sort of hit and miss.

  We'll see what happens, but let's hope something does; at least it can get 
started. If the book turns out to not be what I think it will be, then at least 
it was an idea. But wouldn't it be fun to finally do a sound seeing tour of 
what everybody sees performed every year? Why should all of us blind folks be 
left out of the fun? 

  Any thoughts from any of you are most welcome of course. And thanks a bunch!
