The commercials are the best part! I love hearing about human growth hormone, hard water and technoginals.

:( Art does do a good commercial....   

The Dreamlands do have all their commercials.  Didn't have the heart to lay a finger on them.

Whoa! Awesome detective work!!!
Thanks! 

Also thanks for purging some of those commercials. There were a bunch of shows that I never listened to because I didn't want to deal with all the commercials in a 5 hour show! I'm listening to the 1997-1-21 show for the first time ever today!

I concur mike. What I targeted the most were those 5-hour shows with local news/commercials, now 3 and a half hours, or less, without that.   

Before anyone freaks... I was conservative with editing otherwise.

There've been so many philosophies of how to edit.  I say, ...

Remove bumper music?  NEVER.

Remove Hour 1 or Open Lines?  Of course not.  If a show doesn't have those, it was already like that, or it was recorded that way, and no one has ever had different.... that we know of.

Remove transitions? (that is, the chatter by Art and Ross et al. on the half-hour) (Is there radio lingo for that?) No, I always keep that... except for ads :(.  But some show editors did remove all that stuff (or it never got recorded).  If a show is found like that in this archive, it was already like that.

I actually like all the local news from the 90s. There is just something nostalgic about it. Funny thing is is that when I was listening live all those years ago I hated all that stuff. Now I can't get enough of it. Don't get me wrong I listen for Art. I probably wouldn't listen to the stuff on your cutting room floor if Art wasn't the pay off in the end.

When I get a chance I listen to the old CBS Radio Mystery Theater shows from the 70's, maybe as early as the late 60's.  A lot of them will have the local and national news contained within them.  Listen to those and realize how absolutely nothing has changed by the names of the players.

About the only editing I ever did was cutting it down so a show could be burned onto 2 CDs.

A very hearty gracias and buena suerte to all the peeps that put this together, supplied the parts, and who seed.  I will be seeding also.  Where are people seeding, kickass, but where else, I'd like to add to seeding on other sites.  Has anyone put this on usenet yet, I cannot but hoping someone does and puts a CRC or whatever with it so the evil virus trolls can't harm it/us. 

The Art shortwave thing is a cool add in.

A suggestion:  Someone should add a recording in the extras that is a call for help/recordings not yet in the compendium.  Not everyone knows about bellgab and this thread.  I should have thought of that before now, sorry.

To you people that hit and run:  Please don't hit and run on this one, don't be a sleege.

Guys, Demonoid is back, if anyone wants to start a seed there.

i could, but i would have to reduce the bitrates from what they are now to 16kb/sec , so it wont take weeks to upload. just 3-4 days to upload instead. and i wont be able to seed while doing that. this is because my upload speeds  (like most) suck .

I can't afford usenet right now, I've got ok speeds but I don't have a usenet account or a copy of agent.  Hope someone here CAN do it.

As far as upping the torrent, I'm trying to figure out how to do it so I can offer it on demonoid.  It seems it has to be one file, so trying to rar it, it's gonna take a few hours to do that.

don't do that.

If you have a demonoid account, just copy the description from kickasstorrents, and upload the .torrent you download from there. Or i can send you the original .torrent. No need to rar anything, they only need a .torrent file.

EDIT: it appears that torrents on demonoid need to have a special text file included in them, which would require a completely new torrent with different seeders. I don't know if its worth it.

I'd be willing to bet a cup of coffee that you are correct. Especially since laserjock posted it less than two minutes after williedee's helpful post and possibly didn't even see it. Lesson here is that when directing a post toward an unhelpful post (or even a helpful one for that matter) -- conscientious use of the quote function can avoid any undue confusion or consternation.  :D

Nostalgia is the operative word!  You actually had to write a letter to a guest for a mimeographed newsletter..  If they were REALLY big, they had an 800 #!

Also, I miss how Art had those sound effects, namely the water bong for those callers who seemed a little farther out there than the others.

Neither do I. That seems more like a morning radio host schtick rather than a seasoned professional like Art. If true I would love to hear a clip.

I'm glad it was OK with you.  Some news I never heard the first time - so it was quite fascinating to listen while editing (at least as time permitted). Also I love getting Art's take on '90s news. There was a pretty interesting political hour, with Art (non-SIT version only, included for that reason) (2/18/98).  Same issues, different day.

January thanks for the conscientious care you took with the project.  You and Williedee and all the other noble souls who helped out with this have delivered a great gift to us.

Hey guys! I lurk around here a lot but rarely post.

I just wanted to thank everyone involved with getting this torrent out. I can't imagine the amount of time and work that must have gone into tracking everything down, cataloging every episode and then editing and uploading it. I've been waiting for something like this since I first heard Art.

THANK YOU!!  :) :)
