Talk of the Sound

Talk of the Sound will soon change its appearance, if you want to weigh in on that then now is the time


Over the next month or so, we intend to make a major change to the web. While 99% will be “under the hood” and thus not visible to readers, the 1% that is visible is how folks will see and use the web site so it is not a small thing to pick the right “look and feel” for Talk of the Sound.

We use software called Drupal to present the site to readers, we are currently using version 6.
