had no idea Van Dyke Parks had such deep roots in the Pittsburgh area--McKeesport High School, Carnegie Tech (as it was then), getting thrown out of the Frick mansion (though his visit there today went rather better). Great show.

I'm doing the time warp with Pittsburgh Thursday. It's a good one; be on the lookout for this when it emerges.

I'm not entirely surprised that over two and a half hours, two different audio programs reveal their differences, but is disappointed that the differences are so great. Fortunately, Live offers warping.
