Audio is like gold: it can easily be shaped, molded, crafted; we most often encounter it shiny, burnished to perfection. Radio is like radium: active, ephemeral; it comes and it's gone. Paolo Pietropaolo shares specimens of Audio and Radio with dazzling essential qualities, and demonstrates techniques that (carefully handled, and sparingly used!) help sound chemists everywhere harness their power.
