I just left the office and was standing at the elevator when I checked the site on my phone. Screw it! Burgers on the grill can wait a few more minutes. Now I have something to listen to on the ride home!

…an really enjoying the chance to hear an approximation of how vinyl sounds via your system and its various unobtanium components. Keep up the good work on the show.

Also enjoying your occasionaljokes about the rumble, clicks, ticks and intolerable racket of vinyl playback. (Hah!) In fact the extraordinary quietude of your records makes me wonder a) if these LPs have gone through a vinyl cleaning machine, and b) if you’ve done any click-removal processing of your files.

Yes. De-clicking? No.

Did not listen yet, but how come the file size is approx 1/3 of the previous broadcasts?

Could you make this available as a podcast on the iTunes store please?

After reading what you're after (and the equipment used) I understand why you're not doing it as a podcast (sound quality, through out 2/3 of the bits at random).

Since this is being done under the auspices of a radio station it is not mine to post on iTunes. I'm only doing it here until they get their archiving system up and and then I'll "point" to that location.

I've been waiting to hear some Klezmer on this show (even if it was hidden in a comedy record).

Great fun as always!
