The Complete Broadcast FLAC Mega Download
The NBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Arturo Toscanini
Live Broadcast: 19 July 1942 - Studio 8-H, NBC Radio City Studios. New York.
A FLAC file appeared on 'Symphonyshare' - from which this derives; previously there was a 256mp3. The recording, off-air, is presumably studio-made as the concert runs without breaks - other than about a dozen 'gaps' (and overlaps) - which I have remedied. There was considerable Electrical Storm interference - together with a variety of clicks, etc. The enormous amount of re-editing includes a slight re-equalisation.
