I think of "lots of errors . . ." as listening to classical music over
shortwave.  I hope I don't miss an important moment, key change, or the
like, but I can figure out--interpolate--what's missing to some extent.
Now, it's worth saying that I don't listen to music over shortwave unless
I'm killing time and am pretty desperate.
