Docstoc is Shutting Down
We were recently advised that the document repository website Docstoc will cease to operate in December, which means that nearly 200 playlists in PDF format that we have been harboring there will soon disappear.
As podcasts get recycled and reused, I will move old playlists to the Internet Archive (as I have been using the IA as the playlist repository for several months now), but do not plan a mass migration (the task is just too much for me to handle at this time).
If listeners need a specific playlist, simply drop me a line and I will post it on the IA for sharing. My apologies for this unplanned inconvenience.
This month’s posts
We traditionally use November to undersco re departed artists and composers from this year and the past.
- November 3 – Our Podcast Vault Selection of the Month for November is my August 2011 homage to Leonard Bernstein, who left us 25 years ago. As usual, the podcast will be featured on our Pod-O-Matic channel until the end of November. http://itywltmt.blogspot.com/2015/11/in-memoriam-leonard-bernstein-1918-1990.html
