Listener Willy recorded the sound of leaves rustling to the delight of Willy's one-year-old son. One evening while on a walk Willy discovered that shaking various trees caused his son to laugh louder then he ever has before.

We know now that the Boston Red Sox won the world series, but Monday we were only four games in. Listener Taffy was lucky enough to score tickets to the first game. It's tradition for Red Sox fans to sing "Sweet Caroline" during the eighth inning of a game at Fenway Park. Taffy took us to the park for that moment when she recorded this sound, can you hear the passion?
