I'm a bit surprised there's a difference in any of them; it wouldn't surprise me if all the digital copies floating around originated from the same source recording at some point. It's not a popular show and I can't imagine numerous versions were digitized from tapes and reels back in the day.

I threw my Black Flame series into a RAR file and sent it to Pcloud.  Some of these are upgrades to the ones from the OTRR library.

If any has the missing ones please let me known.

Hey Brian...  What is SPEC?    Is it an audio tool?

I checked three of these and they were duplicates of what is already in our set:
#1 is #11 of the proposed Maintained set
#3 is #13 of the proposed Maintained set
#10 is #35 of the proposed Maintained set

I'm not sure there is a new episode here. Rick, I couldn't tell from your email which ones you identified as audio upgrades. Those three above sounded the same to me, but my ears and laptop speakers are not the best. One was bigger but likely because it's stereo and not mono.

Others are free to take a listen and add their two cents.

I thought this would be a good time to share the 1932 movie "Chandu the Magician" to any other Chandu fans. Frank Chandler (Chandu) is played by Edmund Lowe and Roxor is played by Bela Lugosi. In the 1934 serial  Bela Lugosi reverses his role and plays the part of Chandu. I also, have this serial and will be glad to share if anyone is interested in old cliff hanger serials.
