What's a Spotted Peccary?

The reference here is to an especially good New Age music label, whose performers and performances go well beyond the Doonesbury-initiated tag of "air pudding" to describe the overall genre. Many of the SP recordings are sweeping, almost symphonic in nature. You'll find a few in the library's collection. Try author searches for Greg Klamt, David Helpling, Deborah Martin, John Flomer and Mark Rownd. Visit the Spotted Peccary website ( for information about its performers and their latest releases. (BTW, a Peccary is a pig-like mammal found in the southwestern U.S., plus Central and South America.)
