I can now also accept donations in USD, EUR and AUD. The bank commissions I have to pay on such donations are far less than PayPal, etc. Please contact me if you wish to donate in your currency: sterling donations may also be made by this new method.

Because of vacations, ATOS Convention and other projects, the one-hour podcasts are currently on a monthly schedule until August, when they will revert to bi-weekly, released around the 7th and 21st of each month. 

“I continue to be amazed as to how you produce such quality fidelity from the older vinyls.
My hearing is still excellent, so I’m not overlooking anything. The sound is awesome.
You are a Master. Thank you so much for all you do.”
Edward Burnett, St. Louis
