Thank you! That Chick Endor recording was a real find--and the song is a forgotten gem. I'm glad to be able to offer it this week!

Thanks for putting again very interesting show! I'm particularly grateful of so many forgotten singing duos and harmony groups you have picked, like the great Layton & Johnstone. By the way,
is there any chance for having more of your older shows to Internet Archive in the future?

Thanks--I'm glad you're enjoying the shows! It may be a while before I get to uploading more older shows to Internet Archive--but the missing shows are available through the a-infos radio link right above it on the main page. Most are in 32k, but between the Internet Archive and a-infos, I think they're all up in some form or other.
