MORE LOST SHOWS UNCOVERED We're happy to announce that we've found some more radio shows that were either lost or previously unknown. Many thanks to listeners who continue to help us find programs that are not in our archives.
When we started making our weekly radio program "Off the Hook"
available on the Internet, we used Real Audio and were pretty impressed
that we could get it to work at all. Later, we switched to the more open
and better-sounding MP3 format, at 16kb/second, and the popularity of this format
grew to the point that we no longer needed to offer the Real Audio
files. However, with the widespread availability of broadband Internet
connections, our listeners have been clamoring for higher-fidelity
WINTER ISSUE OF 2600 RELEASED The Winter 2005-2006 issue of 2600 is now officially out. You should be seeing it pop up at stores all throughout the world. (If you know of a store that has it that's not on our list or if a store on our list is incorrect, please let us know by emailing the webmaster.) And if you're a subscriber, it should either be in your hands by now or moving ever closer. More details on the issue are available here.
NEW "OFF THE HOOK" DVD-R RELEASED The new "Off The Hook" DVD-Rs are finished. They contain every known edition of the show from October 1988 through December 2005, as well as other programs that were precursors to "Off The Hook" on WBAI including "The Fifth Corner" which aired in the early 1990s. Since last year's release we've also added some previously lost programs and reencoded the whole thing to make it all sound better. The show details have also been fixed up since the last release. It all fits onto two DVDs and weighs in at over 700 hours of audio for a mere $30.
