I have collected a large number of old time radio shows in MP3 format kept in iTunes. (Things like The Shadow and Boston Blackie)
I have an older friend who is confined to his home and does not have a computer, nor an MP3 player. I wish to make a CD of these old shows for his listening enjoyment, but I'm not sure how to convert the files to some other audio format that would play on his simple "boom box" style CD player.
Any assistance in making this possible would be greatly appreciated as it would give my friend many hours of pleasure.
Unless of course it is not possible, but I think someone here will know a way from my experience with the wide knowledge of ehMacers.
Ah! I understand. First, (in iTunes) you need to make a playlist and then drag the .mp3s you want to burn onto that playlist. Top right of the playlist's window, you'll see the "Burn" icon, hit it and you're good to go.
Incidentally, where did you find your "CBS Radio Mystery Theatre" stuff, on the internet?
Believe it or not, I downloaded all of these episodes back in 1998-1999 from a website which is long gone now. They're not "official studio recordings" they're .mp3 copies made from old cassette recordings of the shows' actual radio broadcast. Picture a kid back in the '70s holding a portable AM radio up to the microphone of a cassette recorder, it's that kind of recording. It's relatively poor quality, but since it's mostly spoken word, it's acceptable. It's really fun to hear these episodes today as recorded back then with commercials. Car commercials, beer commercials, it's hilarious!
Nowadays people want you to buy .mp3 CD compilations of the series, although there are still some sites which offer a couple of episodes to download (Google: CBS Radio Mystery Theatre).
Recently, I did find a streaming feed on Live365, but you have to listen to whatever episode happens to be playing (no control over which episode you can listen to).
