Larry,

 

Below is a list of all the episodes I have that are around 32-40 kbps. If they weren't in the previous list, they are perfectly listenable, but any sound upgrades you have would be awesome. Most of the 1950 series exist at a higher bit rate, with the exception of the first episode.

I have most of the sound upgrade shows at 128 KBPS.

There are a few at 32 KBPS but not many.

I remember getting most from RHAC and Barrett Benson years and years ago.

I still have the open-reels in storage.

I am going through your list now.

I have the shows marked with ‘…’ and in red on reel. I can dub if needed.

 

Best,
