Roy's Record Room

Looks like I’ll have to figure out how to add this to my recording schedule! Can any of the fine Canadian content here at MMC capture this for me? I'll take anything from an audio cassette on up! Of course, I'll have something to trade!

In fact, I'll trade for anything from the above post line-up!

http://www.ckua.org/programs/roysrec.../comingup.html

Coming Up on Roy's Record Room

SHELLAC SHACK SANTA'S THREE SPEED PLATTER PARTY ON ROY'S RECORD ROOM

LATE BREAKING NEWS FROM THE NORTH POLE!

Someone's been messin' with the ol' Shellac Shack Santa's sack of goodies. As well as rare seasonal 78s from my massive Christmas collection, we'll be hearing some cool Christmas 45 and LP cuts on Monday's RRR. Let's call it the Shellac Shack Santa's 3-Speed Platter Party - featuring Christmas C&W, doo-wop, rockabilly, choral, gospel, novelty - you'll hear it all this coming Monday evening.

Yep, that's Monday, December 21st, six PM sharp - for the Shellac Shack Santa's 3-Speed Platter Party on Rooooooy's Record Room - the show where we check out Christmas past to pick up a few Christmas gifts for the future. Don't miss it!

I'm listening now, but I can't guarantee I'll be around at 6 pm tomorrow.

Wonder if they'll add it to their archives. I'll give it a try for tomorrow.

A little lesson for moi - can I simply tune in, listen and save it as a playlist then download it down to a thumb drive or a blank CD for you?

I sound like such an amateur because I am when it comes to this stuff.

I love the back up plan. Now the pressure is off. However, I'll try to catch it tomorrow if I can.
