Sitting by the computer with my acetate machine

Wait, so can I record streaming Sirius broadcasts? And is it a process comprehensible to my rudimentary brain-like thing? Because gosh, I'd love to have that Trovatore they're playing. Corelli's sometimes out of tune and his lisp is absolutely cartoonish, plus Price (though radiant) skips a high note or two she does in the...what...Karajan? with Simionato that are always welcome. Really one reason I prefer it over that one, my general high regard for Simionato notwithstanding, is Dalis as Azucena. So expressive!!! I am the charter member of the Irene Dalis Adoration Society. You are all welcome to join if you like. Meanwhile, someone with a great deal of patience must explain to me how I can get a cylinder of these fine broadcasts.

My computer-savvy nephew downloaded the free Audacity program for me.

I record stuff as soundwave files.

I then burn them to CDs...not to exceed 79 minutes per file.

I'm filling up about 4 CDs per day.

Luckily, he explained everything to me as I wrote each step down.

It's very easy...even if you're an old reel-to-reeler as I was.

Hey Rysanekfreak, if you're still following this thread...could I prevail upon you to email me (address is in profile) with the step-by-step? I downloaded the program.
