Q: Is there any way I can get a copy of Listen Louder? I would love to use it for a meeting I have coming up. Kathleen.watts1@gmail.com

A: I don't actually have an official recording of it, however, you can go here: http://wunc.org/tsot/archive/SOT_72712C.mp3 And download the whole MP3. Now depending on your comfort you could just go to where the song is and hit play when you need to, or you could use something like audacity to pull just that song out. I also have video of me doing it at the Eno here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkWi79b7iSg
