A gift from a friend, and a challenge as well.

I have received the following from a member of CHRS.

Please tell your downloaders that I am going to issue a challenge to them.  

When it comes time for CHRS to call in the pledges to pay for their new building (and it looks like that might be soon), if your downloaders make donations, I will release some rare discs in my collection.  
 
Right now, to show you that I’m serious about this, I gave Ace a show to encode for you to download for free today.  It is rare, and nobody is selling it.

I will give more information about what the challenge is in the next posting.  [/i]

 

Okay folks, you’ve heard the intro.  Now here’s your gift from our donor:

    1. It looks like you and our anonymous donor were one of the lucky ones who had copies of this show, Mike, but now everyone is lucky. I’m glad you got an upgrade for your collection.

      I hope everyone will remember this when it comes time to ask for donations to help us pay for a new home. It should be coming up very soon.

    1. Thank you. With the commenter’s permission I edited the comment so we can add this disc to our upcoming Transcription Disc challenge.

      Everyone please watch this project for more information soon.
