2022 At 78 RPM-Part 25

It's week 25, and that means we're really, really close to the halfway point. Thanks to everyone who's stuck with us this first half of the year, I've really appreciated all of your encouragement. We're also close to our annual Christmas In July celebration, so you've got that to look forward to. It promises to be a good month, though probably not business as usual.  But I'm getting ahead of myself, first I've got to share 25 more great Christmas sides from 78 RPM shellac records courtesy of the Internet Archive. And today it's a pile of multi-part performances. There are some stories in here, and some songs in two parts. Unfortunately, there's also a six part story for which I only have four of the sides. But that's an improvement over last year when I only had two of the sides. I didn't even realize at the time that I was missing all the other sides because I didn't listen closely enough to realize the story didn't end after parts 1 & 2. But now you get parts 5 & 6, so if anyone has the missing sides, please let me know! I think everything else is complete. Download and enjoy!


And in other news, the Internet Archive finally started a 78 dump yesterday after completely skipping May. No clue yet if this one will be twice as large, or if they spent the extra month fixing the bad rips from April. Either way, I'm just glad to have them back at it.
