my apologies



I have stated on the “About” page on this site, and elsewhere, that the music on this blog is downloadable. I thought it was.

I noted my desire “to share some rare recordings from my collection of classical music, which started with LP’s in the 1960’s.”

I tried to download a music track from this site today and found out that this was not doable.

After consulting with a WordPress tech support person, I have learned that the situation with music posted on this site is like YouTube. You can play it but you can’t download it.

This defeats a major purpose of mine in posting classical music on this site.

I am disappointed and wish the music could be downloaded; I do not, however, intend to delete the posts of music already here.

    Nice to have these, Roger. No need to be able to download. Just listening anytime we want to is enough. Thanks, Tom
