Review of Dr. Pong

Oliver owns a table-tennis bar. Cool. I've heard of weird bars, like art bars, TV watching bars (think soaps, or an episode of Friends). Table tennis (ping pong) isn't really the focus, but the architecture of the bar plays a role. And, it sounds fun, with a rolling game of ping pong involving 20 or so people. And a franchise? Maybe, says Oliver.

The audio has very sharp echo but is understandable. It seems mostly like a dream sequence but becomes less noticeable as you get used to it.

I liked this piece. It's just Oliver, no narration, and some music. Short, sweet and interesting. Good for a Public Radio Weekend type show, or Littlefield's Only a Game.
