An exercise in patience. 
JULY 25, 2001 - The Shaft sounded off with their historic first show on July 25, 2001.  It was historic because they recorded the material that they believed to be the funniest out of their big pile of it.  Except they didn't have the audio production "juice" that they used in all subsequent shows.   The end result was a show that was probably weaker than any of the others.  The first time is always overrated.  

Listeners and those at The Shaft disagree on whether the first show was sheer brilliance or a big stinking pile of crap that was too long--31 minutes.  Hey, if it's too long,  turn it off for Blatz's sake.  But please come back.  

Why listen?  First off,  being the debut,  The Shaft Sounds Off! gained their first signs of a cult following during this show.  We'd like to thank those at the Eastern and Western compounds of the Divine Resture for listening.
