Could I possibly get a copy of that "lucky-strike-hour-jan-31-1933" from you?
I can't figure out how to download it from soundcloud and I would like to pick
off the Happy Days opening and close as well as the Lucky Strike spot.
I recently had Expert Stylus in the UK make me a 6 mil stylus for playing those
Victor Home Recordings with my Stanton 500 series cartridge and I'm getting
excellent results with it. I sent them an original Victor Home Recording
stylus so they could get all the dimensions from it and the result that they
sent me looks fabulous under my Binocular Microscope.
