It's a subscription thing.

I think I suggested earlier that you write to me. :D

Not a complaint - certainly not! - just an addendum, that the unbroadcast episode 'Kiss' was available here on ER some time ago, I do hope Croz knows about this, I have no idea why it was missing from the broadcasts as it as good as any others.

I AM having difficulty unzipping the 3rd season files, as they come as a very large file - for some reason this appears to unzip but only gives me a further zip file, which (when I try an unzip that) simply duplicates the original zip file. This is not a huge problem for me as I already have the actual shows, but would have loved to have these newly annotated versions. Any advice very gratefully received, and allow me to thank Croz once again for the fantastic dedication, and service beyond the call of duty.

NB - My unzip problem neatly solved by using Betterzip. Thanks a million for putting these all in one place, and for the updated annotation.

I wasn't aware there were FLACs out there. Where can they be found?

Thanks for your work here.

A thousand and one thanks for this!

I, similar to others 'round here, lost my recordings of these a while ago and just recently got inspired to hunt them down. Amazing work.

It’s burned a bit when folks here and elsewhere complain about my inconsistent presentation of the TTRH. I wish they would remember that I was there from the start and so my files were what they were, but so it goes. Time marches on! Expectations increase (and rightfully so.)

Over the last year I have done my best to put together a fresh iteration of the entire 100-show series. MP3s @ 320 sourced from the best FLACs I could find. And most importantly I have taken a lot of time to tag every show carefully. Indeed I have used show transcriptions from these forums to fill in info. I have tried to tag every single track appropriately to my own taste and judgment. I have done my own research and it has been very rewarding. This is indeed the best radio show. EVER. And Karl's allowing me to play my versions here has changed my life forever. No kidding.

My plan is to eventually present a truly definitive @320 version of the entire run, specifically with regards to track information (clips, jingles, etc). The FLACs should stay out there as x up as they are—there is a risk that this could go up for sale (and some might accuse me of that). But the filler is half the fun of the show! We wanna know. And so I have tried to provide. So if you find mistakes I want to know! I want this to be out there 100 years from now with every detail correct. This show will outlive us all, not just Maestro Picasso.

It is not yet complete (I think I have one more revision in me) but the tags are good and you can help, or they are better, anyway, and the best out there, and I even split up a couple of the 3rd season’s shows the way they should be (it bugs me when Bob’s talk is included with the tunes).

So I hope this is OK with Karl that I post these linked on Mega, but that seems to be the way things are going. Don’t use Safari: use Chrome or Firefox.

Enjoy and please don't mind my posting style evolution!

Hi Croz, getting Season 3 in one folder on Mega was so helpful and easy. Did you by any chance ever do this with seasons 1 and 2? If so, would it be possible to get links? Thanks so much! JM

Thank you so, so much for these files. Have been able to get up on all the ones from Seasons one and two that I had never had. This is real exciting and now I have a happy job in catching up on my listening. Great appreciation

As above, Season three file is gone. would greatly love a reseed but maybe there is a reason it can't be done. would certainly understand you have lots of other claims on your energies and this must be a pretty low priority. Honest and deep gratitude for all the other links which are up and very active. they download super fast!

Wonderful stuff!
