Good News - I will soon be offering all of my Virtual Victrola / Futuristic Rhythm audio programs on CD, including the 2007 Christmas Show and the 2009 Christmas Show.
I am offering these programs on custom-made CD-R format, playable in any standard CD or DVD player. Each episode comes with program notes and a complete playlist.
Of course the CD's are full quality 16 bit/44.1 kHz digital audio, as opposed to the mp3 versions of the shows that are available for download.Check back for details after the beginning of the year.
