Because the in-laws are here this week I just took the FLAC files from the torrent, converted them to MP3 and then uploaded them. This means I didn’t load them into iTunes nor label the MP3s properly nor actually give the show a proper listen. I did do a little spot check listening to make sure it sounded ok (it sounds great) but other than that I can’t comment on the show. Sorry about making you label things yourself, but I just haven’t had the opportunity to do it myself.
