It's that time of the month again for our monthly program of new releases. John Schaefer once again picks through the bucketloads of CDs that have flooded his office to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program.

Where can a find a track listing for this episode? I am interested in the Italian guitar album and the piece played right after that. In general, why do some shows have track listings and some do not? Some starving artists will not be getting my money if I can't find out who they are.
