Arizona Public Media engineer extraordinaire Jim Blackwood was so intrigued by the acoustics in a stairwell in the basement of the AZPM studios that he decided to start recording performances in there:


But recently, recording engineer Jim Blackwood decided to try something new. For years, Jim had noticed the unique acoustics of the five-story stairwell that is right outside the studio door.

Greyhound Soul's Joe Peña is the first musician in the well. Check out his session, which aired last Friday on Arizona Spotlight.
