If I read Karl Schadow's piece correctly, only 15 episodes of the series were aired. It had a pretty short run. Unfortunately, even all those are not available, as you mention.

I think Karl found them and donated them. It's a great show. The first one has a different actor which I really liked. The rest are just as good. Bummer there are so few episodes.

I had never heard of The Man from Homicide. I'm going to download a couple of episodes from the OTRR Library and check it out. Thank You.

Linux user here as well (Ubuntu Studio).  Even the Arch distros though aren't rolling out the latest and "greatest" due to this.  That tells you just how things are considered in the open source world in general.

LET’S TALK TO LUCY

Half a century before Marc Maron started welcoming guests to his garage and podcasts became popular, Lucille Ball hauled around a reel-to-reel tape recorder to conduct interviews with the likes of Red Skelton, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Carol Burnett and Danny Kaye for CBS Radio. Now, episodes of Let’s Talk to Lucy from 1964-65 are being made available on Apple Podcasts and SiriusXM Radio’s app.

(A handful of these 15-20 minute shows were included as bonus content with the Blu-ray release of one Here’s Lucy and The Lucy Show…but nobody seemed to notice.)

Histories of American radio will tell you that the last network shows aired from 1960 to 62. But two years later, William S. Paley’s Tiffany network gave daytime radio one last chance.



Who would dream that one of the busiest and best-loved stars of television would agree to interview friends and colleagues in Hollywood? It couldn’t have been a paycheck that motivated her; she really enjoyed the experience, which is obvious when you listen to the show. (It also gave a token job to her husband Gary Morton, who serves as announcer.)

It’s clear that Lucy is having a good time and so are her guests, who feel completely at ease. First off, most of them are in their dressing rooms instead of a broadcast studio. They know that a fellow professional would never ambush them or ask an embarrassing question. I’ve never heard Frank Sinatra so relaxed as he talks about his kids and lays out his schedule for the rest of the year. Likewise, Mary Tyler Moore feels comfortable enough to acknowledge that her son is from her first marriage and not the offspring of current husband Grant Tinker. Lucy and Mary compare notes on having kids who play drums and Lucy worries that the noise might disturb her next-door neighbor Mary (Mrs. Jack) Benny!

Let’s Talk to Lucy Sirius XM Holdings Inc.


I’m told that eventually we’ll get to hear all 240 episodes of this little-known gem of a program. I can hardly wait.

Not sure if I have them all, but I believe I do have some.

Now I’ll have to look to see what I do have.

Re: Audacity alternatives

Wild West Designs
 

That's true, but the one thing that I was worried about was this statement here:

"But, if they don't reverse course, then the next version may not be"

Which gives the implications that it hasn't happened yet when you made that post, when indeed it had made the change a few days prior to your post.  I could have misread that, it wouldn't have been the 1st time, but that did lead to some confusion to me, so I imagine that it would have been possible to do so for others as well.

Here is the post from the Audacity project stating which version would be the first one subject to this and here is the github page with releases showing what the actual version that they are on now.


It should be noted that Linux distros that are rolling release (Arch being the most well known, but Suse as well, even Debian has a rolling version) are not rolling the new versions of this program.  That should make it apparent just how bad they think of this situation.
