Join us as "Re:sound" returns to the airwaves in June and July. This week we're going on three “soundwalks” that meander at the pace of real life.

First, the 4700 block of Liberty Heights Avenue is a portrait of survival and adaptability. It's a self-governed, informal economy where the currency is respect. Space is shared by merchants, churches, longtime residents, and drug dealers. Immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, West Africa, and Korea have set up shops alongside a dwindling number of African American-owned businesses. Trust is earned here, not given lightly.

Join us this Sunday for another Re:sound special, airing as part of Public Radio Presents. This week we look at the ups and downs of confinement with "The Tight Spaces Show."

This week -- sometimes the only way to get out of a tight space is by getting into an even tighter one; getting through, or really -- underneath, the Berlin Wall; the need for wide-open space, and the resulting case of claustrophobia; and the isolation solitude confinement happiness freedom domain (that's right).

In this archived broadcast from June 14, 1991, John Weeks talks about the sounds of nature. He goes into detail about how the sounds of the forest give us an idea about what is going on in nature and in the forest. without the sound of birds, animals and the wind we loose the important of nature.
