This is one of the most fascinating shows on PBS right now. The producers take modern artists and have them record material onto old stereophonic equipment from the 1920's and the results are so wonderful.

Enjoying that show immensely. Imagine recording directly to wax. One microphone for the whole band! Hot tubes of glowing filaments! I had to sign up!

Thanks for posting, I had watched the first three online and didn't realize there was a 4th episode - and IMO the 4th one was the best! I turned it on feeling really skeptical about it since I'm not a fan of much modern music (rap especially) but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed every single performance. And since Vox Studios is here in my hometown, I enjoyed seeing a familiar location and some familiar faces.

Yeah, Nas was one of the few great performances on that series.
