A very good webstream recording. There's a bit of clipping, but it is not major. The songs contained here are from the TOTU tour rehearsals, because Wrong and Walking In My Shoes later appeared as bonuses on the "Tour Of The Universe" DVD. The interviews were likely done around the time of the original FM broadcast date of July 10, 2009. There was then a first FM rebroadcast on September 14, 2009, and a second FM rebroadcast on December 31, 2009 as part of a "Best Of 2009" series. This webstream version contains Come Back as a web-only bonus; it was not part of any of the FM broadcasts, but is part of the pre-FM CD source.

Note that there is a pre-FM CD source for just the songs (plus Come Back which was not broadcast, and minus the interviews), which unfortunately appears to be lossy, at Source 1.

And, the second FM rebroadcast from December 31, 2009, which mirrors this content, minus "Come Back" which was a web-only extra, is available at Source 2.

Of all three sources, Source 1 (the pre-FM) is the best sounding, because it does not have any FM radio dynamic range compression applied, it seems less lossy than the 128kbps MP3 webstream version, and it has none of the slight clipping that this webstream MP3 version has.

The streams below have not been re-encoded; these are the same 128kbps MP3 files you can download in the archive.
