I'm not sure..I know they could be bought on amazon as mp3 but I'm not sure about free downloads..unfortuantly.

The Laurel And Hardy Show pilot episode (and sadly, ONLY episode ever made) sounds great. Do you have this source?

The Mail Call epsidoe in which they appear and perform the Wedding Night sketch with Edgar Kennedy and Patsy Moran is not quite so good but is still more than listenable, and very enjoyable:

These are GREAT, Ritchie!
Oddly enough I was making my way through the Benny shows over the past 2 weeks or so and had to toss out the very shows you have restored as they were too terrible, sound wise, to listen to.
These are key shows, too- the earliest surviving examples.
Keep up the great work!
I gotta ask- what motivated you to restore these?
Thanks again!
