Flashback listening

Classic British radio programs rebroadcast at the BBC 7 Listen Again site. I've already nabbed episodes of "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again" (a wonderful comedy sketch show that John Cleese was performing in/writing for at the same time he was in the original "Monty Python's Flying Circus" on TV) and "Hancock's Half Hour" (both intelligently hilarious series and well worth sampling if you haven't heard them before). I also spotted radio versions of P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves & Wooster adventures, Doctor Who, Father Brown mysteries, 2001: a Space Odyssey, etc. Programs only stay available for a week; they're all in .ram format for RealPlayer, but can be downloaded if you right click on the "listen again" button (which means if, like me, you dislike RealPlayer's spyware tendencies, you can block the little sucker from communicating with the mothership and still listen to recordings) ... I plan to play around later to see if I can't convert these treasures to .mp3 format. ***crosses fingers that the ISIRTA version of "The Taming of the Shrew" appears here one day***
