A Petworth 4th (MP3 format, 2.1 MB)

Last week, intrepid correspondent Dave McKenna recorded the sounds of the 4th of July outside his Petworth home into his voice mail. And finally, a week later, we’ve figured out how to get this off of our voice mail and on to you who might live in more tranquil environs.

This was recorded at around 10 p.m., and Dave reports that this was pretty much the scene from 6 p.m. until around 2 a.m.
