I have sad news. My friend, mentor, and in many ways the person who was 
most influential in encouraging me to become involved in audio tape 
restoration, Jim Wheeler, passed away recently. I have no further 
details. Jim's wife called Jim Lindner who emailed me.

As many of you may know, Jim Wheeler's health had deteriorated over the 
last decade, so this is not unexpected. He had not been living at home 
for a while.

Jim Lindner has been pursuing other interests, and has somehow fallen 
off the ARSC list. He specifically asked me to post this news.

Quality tape transfers -- even from hard-to-play tapes.
