This week’s episode gives us the opportunity to hear something we all miss very much and that we can't wait to hear again in person: a concert. Judlyne Gibson, producer of The 2nd Street Dreams Audio Network, imagines how that first live concert will feel like. The story, originally produced in English, and has been translated into French and you can hear that version later on in the episode.
