The Orson Welles Commentaries were mostly lost to time, but now we have pretty much all of them and I present them with my podcast team every Wednesday and thought some of you might like to hear it. Here is the episode from 75 years ago this week.  This is one of the episodes that has been missing for 75 years.  Tell me if you want me to post more.

Well I guess we will start marching backwards to cover the episodes that we've already done.  I really like this one in that it gives us both insight into Orson as well as Louie Armstrong and Jazz as well as modern Classical music at the time.  Oh, and my crew is historian Kathy Fuller-Seeley writer of a few books on Jack Benny and Terry Phillips who has a long history in entertainment as well as currently writing and producing new audio dramas and comedies. Yet another episode that has been missing for 75 years!

Orson Welles Podcast 1945-11-11 Orson Welles Commentaries - Orson Reads a Letter by Louie Armstrong, and is Accompanied by a Jazz Jam Session (Kathy, Terry, Buck)

Orson's podcast is usually on the Judy Garland and Friends OTR Podcast at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] every Wednesday for Welles Wednesday.

This is very exciting! I'd like to hear these to fill in some gaps in my Welles research.

The Orson Wells Commentary files I'm sharing each week are the highest quality files that I have ever heard of this series and each and every one sound marvelous so far!

They'll be the ones posted by the Lilly Library. They posted a complete set, except for one episode (1946.03.10) which they have, but haven't posted for some reason.

Has anyone converted these over to MP3 somewhere?  I keep converting them one at a time, but it's a little bit of a pain.  I'm saving them as individual files without my intros and as podcasts with my intros.  I will make them all available in a batch in this thread, with and without intros, when I'm done with the weekly podcasts of them.  So don't waste your time downloading them and stripping off my intros if anyone is doing that, It's just a waste of your time, since I will provide them to everyone sans intros anyway.

Happy New Year, all.

The Lilly Collection is a great blessing - and a template for how OTHER large amassings of Classic Radio/Audio material should be presented in the Digital/Internet Age.

Yes, I know that it takes money - which the Lilly got.

But if all the money that we all spent on buying discs, in the era when discs are passing, could be applied to a "common good" fund for such projects, ALL would benefit.

And this worthy material would be widely, and well, heard. Which is the literal meaning of, "Broad - casting." And which was the goal for which all of these artists and craftsmen did all of their hard work over many years.

Pray (if so inclined), take good care, and be well,
- Craig

Well-said, Craig. They gave me a fellowship to fund my research on the political life of Orson Welles and I'm forever grateful.

Well, since so many of you seem to like those January episodes I posted last week then lets post another month of episodes from February 1946, 75 years ago!  Here is where we leave behind all of the sets made available commercially and get into the really rare stuff that I think can only be found in the Lilly collection.
