Minnesota Fringe Festival

Baron Dave Romm coverage of the Minnesota Fringe Festival with the 2012 continuing coverage, 2011 links on this page and 2005-2010 legacy links clickable. (I'll add other files as time permits.)

All Audio files can be found on the Shockwave Audio Page, and this is merely a section duplicating the listings to group the Fringe files together.
Read all the Shockwave Radio Theater reviews and other Fringe blogging on LiveJournal.

The shorter soundfiles are mp3s, marked in blue. Clicking on the link will open a new window with a Quicktime slider. If you have the Pro version, you can download the file to your computer. Otherwise, just listen to the streaming audio. If you don't have QuickTime, get it here.

Podcasts will take you to the download page.
These files, marked in gold, are in aac (m4a) format, with pictures and links, and are best played in iTunes or on an iPod.

YouTube videos are all on Baron Dave's YouTube Channel

Starting in 2009, photo galleries are all on Baron Dave Romm's Albums on Facebook. Many of the pictures have audio links to interviews which may not be noted here.
