Mark Jeacoma and Chris Hasler love ALL TV - the comedies, drama, horror and even love stories but there are many shows that have been overlooked and considered lost. With the help of friends, fellow musicians and celebrity guests Mark and Chris seek these shows out and opens the forum to a discussion about these forgotten and not so forgotten gems.
 
Mark Jeacoma and Alex Saltz from APS Mastering in NYC bring you a show about all things audio - from budget home studios to high end mastering houses from home consumer equipment to audiophile home systems. We include in the discussion the vast amount of vintage equipment we own and how it compares to today.
