What happened to your search engine ?

We have discovered the search results were too broad, sometimes causing confusion. As a result, we have temporarily removed the page. The search engine will be reinstated at some point in the near future, and we would like to thank you in advance for your patience as we work to refine this important feature. In the meantime, we hope you will have no problems finding your favorite shows through the alphabetical lists on the left side of each page.

I want my programs on Compact Disc.
Is this possible ?

ABSOLUTELY !! Here’s the details…

Each 60 minute CD, one 60 minute show or any two 30 minute shows of your choice will cost $9.00 per 60 minutes.

90 minute shows will require two CD’s, and are $14 per program.

In Canada and elsewhere CD’s are $12.00 per hour and $17.00 for 90 minute shows.

As always, NO EXTRA CHARGE FOR CUSTOM MADE CD’S.

As is the case with our shows on cassette, our policy is to not re-master the source material except for occasional discreet use of equalization in cases in which the master recording is flawed.

We have had numerous requests for our shows on CD, but to remaster each of our thousands of programs is, of course, out of the question! Also, individual remastering of custom CD’s would be far too time-consuming and would result in an extraordinarily high cost per CD.

We believe the bulk of our programs would not benefit to any great degree by any sort of remastering (and any with serious problems are so noted) and, as always, our goal is to retain the original sound quality of the recording as much as is possible.

Please, feel free to call, write, or email us with any questions you did not find here. Your complete satisfaction is our future.

Thanks again for your interest in Fair Pickings.
