Thought I'd dig this show up from the archives to replay as a webcast this week as 2010 was another stellar year for all things Digitalis. The audio for the interview sections is a bit rough, so please pardon the "mechanical frog" tones of Brad's voice. But the interview covers quite a bit of ground, including Foxy Digitalis (the webzine), Digitalis Recordings (the label), and Altar Eagle (Brad and Eden's excellent recording project).
