It is finished!

March 17, 2012

I can hardly believe it, but I think I’m done with the digitizing! I may go back and do a few of the ones I skipped if I get the chance, but I’ve done everything that (a) was an actual program, (b) seemed historically significant or hard-to-find, or (c) otherwise caught my eye. The things I skipped were all records that my mom confirmed were most likely copied from commercial recordings. Apparently he worked the day shift on Sundays for a while; there were no live shows so he had a bit of time on his hands. Almost every week, he’d come home with a record or two that he’d made from the WJR libraries during his shift. This would have been in the late 1950s to early 1960s.

I’m now ready to part with the records and the gear. I’ve got a place for the records (actually, a plan A and a plan B) and will be listing the gear on eBay very soon. Just in case anyone’s interested, I’ll post here with a link once it’s listed.

Preparations for our move are in full swing, but if I get a chance I’ll put some new programs up. I’ve been able to confirm that we should have a good internet connection in Thailand, so I will still be able to continue posting music after we move. Thanks for sticking with me!
