Hey Max,
Just curious; are the DVD's on ebay from you or are they bootlegs?
I am interested in getting some of the older shows on DVD, but I want them from a reputable source.
Any info would be appreciated.

You have to be more specific. Apparently there is at least one DVD that did not come from my sources. (Just joking Jeff, relax).

Do you mean radio shows on DVD discs, or movies? Stocky Sweets got their video tapes from me, as did the Coolthingstoown (all but the live library interview), as far as I know. They encoded them to DVD. Since then, I have had many of my video tapes digitally cleaned up and professionally encoded. The rest will be done eventually.

If you mean the radio shows in DVD format, I assume it's the same old Fathead Central collection in a new storage medium. Low bit-rate mp3, from a variety of sources, including my broadcasts.

As far as I know, I am the only person issuing new mp3 shows. No doubt at some point someone will buy them from me and start selling them on eBay, but I don't think they have entered that realm yet.

I have great plans for lots of new CD sets too, but, as with the cassette releases of the previous 10 years, it's slow-going.

I have been digitizing at least a dozen shows a week for the last year, but have yet to compile, compress, press, or distribute any of them, except as radio broadcasts. Some are of such (low) quality that they don't deserve CD issue, but I'm thinking of starting to compile them on mp3 discs, just to get them out there, since for the most part they aren't known broadcasts. Many of these are from 1967-70, a period where there aren't too many shows extant. So look for the show database on to expand a bit in those years, as soon as I can shoot the data to Jim C.
