Hi Folks,

Turns out I was born 40 years too late, but for some reason have an affinity for WWII-era history. I'm assembling a digitized V-Disc collection and was looking for a complete catalog of releases. Don Kennedy from Big Band Jump radio suggested a book called V-Discs: First Supplement, but it is a whopping $167 on Amazon. Do any of you old codgers or other oddballs like me have ideas of where to find better listings? If not, looks like I'll pony up the cash.

Now, back to The Ink Spots....

Thanks, Derek

I wonder if such a list might be archived in some government database. In fact that is probably where the assemblers of the book got their information.

And after further thought, such a source might be worth the price.

OK I was born in 1932 but have no idea what a "V-Disc" is. ?????

Audio recordings created for distribution to the military. Sometimes recordings heard on no other media.

Lots of them on Ebay.
