February 2020 Podcast – Live Without A Net (S2, E1)

This month, our focus is on music recorded live in front of an audience.  As a musician myself, while I love listening to music from an album, I love performing in front of a live audience and watching how a song connects with the collective.  I’ve chosen 21 live tracks, some never released for your listening enjoyment.
