Is the catch phrase for our government to condescend all of us in 2017. Thanks for the list. A real trip hearing your voice blasting thru my rig!

Is there a download of this, or is it for streaming only?

"analog/Digital mix-tapes!" The gift of beautiful music is an act of love. I enjoy and always learn from your comments about pressings etc. too. You are a national treasure (as are other writers at Stereophile) and I mean that without irony.

My wife adds her gratitude, as well!

Nicely done!

Why aren't you on WFDU 1 . I think you need a weekly radio program right after Tony Smith .

This is always great.

I don't know why, but more artists should be doing what Brian Culbertson does with his "The Hang" program you can watch on YouTube. Each program is an hour long and great fun to watch. They would not have to be as elaborately done as what Brian does, one camera and a couple of nice mics and mic pres.

His Club is generating some nice money for him, but he works very hard at it with 3 shows per week.

I'm adding this to the holiday repertoire, thanks!

How we miss your live weekly show, (time fly's) but still enjoy all your reviews. One Song that kinda fits the obscure list is Christmas Dream by Perry Como, find on original early 60's vinyl only and CD remasters, They don't compare and how much the we could use it's meaning. A Healthful wish for the New Year!
