Art Sound and Song parts 1 & 2

Adrian Rew and Bob Nickas came in to play their collection of artists' records, which raised a question: What makes an artist record? 

Bob seems to think if an artist made it, it's an artists' record. But what makes an artist, Bob?

Listen to their collection and banter here and here.
