PLAYLISTS - A PERSONAL MEMOIR OF ANNE ZIEGLER AND WEBSTER BOOTH - PODCASTS

After Episode 12 of On Wings of Song - Webster Booth as Soloist I will be uploading a podcast every second week rather than weekly.  The dates of forthcoming podcasts are included in these playlists.

Here are the playlists for the podcast series - A PERSONAL MEMOIR OF ANNE ZIEGLER AND WEBSTER BOOTH.  The last podcast playlist appears first in the list and the date of the upload is given. I may have added a playlist for a podcast which is yet to be uploaded.

I have added some of the earlier podcasts to the Internet Archive and will gradually be removing them from Podomatic when I run out of storage space there. The list of my podcasts at the Internet archive is:
