Hot, uncensored listening station action!

(Above: Not our listening station.)

Yeah, so maybe we have been bludgeoning you all over the head a little bit about our new listening stations, but our enthusiasm is warranted. After all, they give each and every one of you the opportunity to listen to over 30 albums in their ENTIRETY and at your complete LEISURE. Indeed, it's an all-caps kind of awesome, and we're happy to provide it for you. However, some of you surely haven't had a chance with the listening stations just yet, so here's a handy-dandy list of what's on each of them:

hey, while working at Twains this week I actually had three different people comment on seeing/hearing me in the listening station. So, that was cool, I guess.
