Piece Description

The Italian city of Bologna is filled with music -- in the streets, in the churches, on the piazza. But the likes of parishoners and Gypsy accordion players hold not a candle to the Great Pepe, an artist with a motorcyle, an old poodle, and a dream.

Review of Street Music

Great recordings and soundscape. Loved the movement through places and people. Felt like a personal tour of Bologna. Braider has a great voice for radio. Would have liked to have heard his commentary in first person rather than reportage. His voice could lend itself to the more personal approach. Still this piece would be an assett to any magazine program. Good work!

Review of Street Music

an unusual approach to a travel picture not following a linear path...sort of ethereal..... based on the sounds of a Piazza in Bologna Italy.
