Just heard about this website: the UCSB Wax Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project. They have a couple of "cylinder radio shows" that you can plug into your SqueezeNetwork favorites. Yes, you heard right - finally, you can listen to scratchy old cylinder recordings via your Squeezebox.

See
http://128.111.87.4:8000/speeches
for some historical speeches recovered from wax cylinders,

and

http://128.111.87.4:8000/cylinder_radio
for some cylinder tunes.

The UCSB wax cylinder site is located at http://cylinders.library.ucsb.edu/
They have many more recordings available for download from this site.

Cheers,

Chris
