For this RADIOLA! I've used mainly selections in which the "shellac sizzle" has been greatly reduced. Because I tend to be skeptical about the miracles of modern technology (and modern everything else), I've endeavored to exercise a light touch in my restorations.
Tune in Friday at 8 PM Eastern to WHCL (with direct stream here) and you'll wonder where the noise went. This show will be uploaded to my Live365 station shortly thereafter.
(Many thanks to George, Luigi, Rich, Randy, Chris, and The Codger for technical advice, suggestions, moral support, and contributions of recordings for this program.)
