It only makes sense. PBS, the most visible national broadcaster of classical-music-related programs, has decided to launch its own classical-music label.

When I first attended Comdex several years back, it was easy to feel like a fish out of water.

But I was still curious about what all the brainiacs were up to.

Throughout the history of the animal kingdom, sounds have always been full of meaning. They provide valuable information on the whereabouts of prey and predator, the location of family, the intentions of friend and foe.
