Episode 034 – Testing, 1, 2, 3

In this vacation episode we hear Steve and Dan’s very first recording effort. Previously thought long deleted, this was the test recording Dan and I did to see how we sounded together. It’s raw, we’re sloppy, the sound quality is sub-par and I was still figuring out editing in Garageband but listening to it again after all this time made me oddly nostalgic. Enjoy!
