Episode 019: Opera Bio and Sonic Vintage of the Fourth Formant

Here's a couple of items -- yes you get a 2fer this week! -- that will hopefully be very funny to a select segment of the population, and hopefully enjoyable for the rest of you out there who choose to spend 5 minutes a week with me in your ear. "Opera Bio" began as a joke when a friend and performer in one of the opera production I created the program for had yet to turn in his cast bio. The result is what I jokingly threatened to insert in its place. Trolling at its finest. The person in question is a great guy. You know who you are! "Sonic Vintage of the Fourth Formant" is what happens when an explanation classical singing collides with my damaged imagination.
