Event Archive FAQs

Q. Why can't I find the transcript or audio recording I'm looking for?

A. The Club endeavors to record and distribute as much of its programming as possible. However, due to resource constraints, not all programs are recorded; and among those, not all are made available for streaming over the internet or transcribed.

We do, however, attempt to post all audio from programs which will or have been broadcast on radio and as much audio as possible from programs referenced in our monthly magazine The Commonwealth. All archival program materials may be accessed in the section of the Web site.

Q. Why don't you stream in other formats or make recordings available for download?

A. For many years, due to resource constraints, the Club only streamed in the RealAudio format. With the launch of our redesigned web site in April 2011, we began posting all new audio (and much of the old audio) in the MP3 standard format.

Q. Can I purchase a CD of a past program?

A. Yes, recordings of many past programs may be purchased on CD. To order a CD online, call (415) 597-6705.
