Show Notes:
Sadly, due to union issues (shadow crew?), this one was not granted film permissions.

Instead, this was clearly the audio 'gem' of the trek, and I apparently have a love affair with Ohio when it comes to TMS recordings.

Just *listen* to those textures...

Was a fantastic show, and was one for the ages...check out the samples to see if you agree!!!!

Dennis is the wizard...and I am the toilet.

You know what to do.
