Date 2022 Program Acquisitions # Episodes Costs

This year I'm tracking all our high quality program acquisitions.   I buy lossless wav or flac files from various sources to upgrade our OTR library for the best sound available.   Yes many, many shows are available for free as poorly transferred mp3's from the past, but I avoid those whenever possible.   I also look for rare and uncirculated programs on transcription discs and reels.   I transfer, clean and restore the audio myself.

There is a time lag between when I purchase a program and when it finally shows up in the scheduler.   I screen each and every show which takes time.

01/02/2022 Transcription Disc - Theater Guild, ep #3 (rare in HQ) 1 $68
