    Welcome to Copper #63! This issue's menu offers summer reading ranging from light amuse-bouche to meaty main courses. I hope you'll enjoy it.

    Everything is relative: the high-nineties temperatures of the Colorado summer seem brutal until one encounters 115 degrees at the Grand Canyon. Given that, I promise---for as long as I think of it---that I will no longer complain about the temps here in Boulder.

    For a while, anyway.

    Professor
     Schenbeck  introduces us to the phenomenal recordings from Ondine; Dan Schwartz encounters an online troll---unfortunately, face to face; Richard Murison realizes that the Cold War is gone, sorta, but not forgottenJay Jay French enumerates what it takes to be a rock 'n' roll star---and spoiler alert, it involves work; Roy Hall remembers hotels, both grand and less soAnne E. Johnson looks at the post-pop star work of Marianne Faithfull;  Christian James Hand dismantles the old Toto hit "Rosanna", track by track; and I look at the meaning of NOS, and at...well, the meaning of meaning. Or meaninglessness. Having flashbacks to Philosophy 101 yet?

    Industry News 
    looks at the forthcoming IPO of Sonos; and our friend Gautam Raja examines the different types of enthusiasts---which are you?

    Copper #63 concludes with Charles Rodrigues looking at the world of speaker testing, again; and I suffer for my art with a Parting Shot from the scorching hot Grand Canyon.

    Woody Woodward is still on sabbatical, and will return in a few issues.

    Thanks for reading, and see you next issue!

    Cheers, Leebs.
