Where can I get my hands on some Schickele Mix?
December 12, 2011 12:09 PM   Subscribe

I want to give my mom a collection of Peter Shickele's great NPR classical music show: http://www.schickele.com/mix/. I was able to track down a few shows from various sources online but I really want a complete set. Does anyone have any advice?

You could assemble them yourself, as the disclaimer on the site says

We regret that due to copyright restrictions it is not possible to offer Schickele Mix broadcasts on CD or tape or download.

I've long wanted copies of these myself, but Ideafixe is right. It's probably a rights issue and if that's the case, due to the nature of the show, you likely won't ever see single episodes, let alone a complete set of them, available legally for purchase anywhere.

That's a damn shame because it was a great and entertaining show and I learned a lot from listening to it.

The farewell link in the blue mentions torrent archives. Since downloading the 6-part torrent archive of every single show listed on various torrent search engines would be illegal, I won't suggest doing that and supporting Schickele and the artists and performers he featured through other means.
