Audio Links, and more...

Back to Robert Auld Home Page
This page contains an utterly biased selection of mostly audio-related links. My criteria for selection include redeeming social value (i.e., content that is educational, not just advertising, etc.) and fun-factor (totally subjective). I have tried to avoid sites that are pure commercial puffery, or that download like molasses over a standard modem connection. (Where this slowness is unavoidable, I warn you.) I shall be adding links to this page from time to time.

Naturally, I cannot guarantee that the contents of other sites will be as advertised, or even that the links will all work. If you notice that a link is broken, drop me a note.
