Please explain to me why binaural is different from stereo. As you know, I consider WSS the last great Broadway musical and adore it mostly, but I could not get this to work for me. I kept getting the message "This content is not available in your location."
Incidentally, "Maria" is the standard way of teaching kids how to sing a rising tritone.



There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

I think the BBC is temporarily blocking listeners outside the UK but most of their binaural links here work. I downloaded WSS from a third-party UK source that had access to the webstream and uploaded the file to another forum.
