How to make your own long playing track

If you have saved a tune on your computer and wish to edit that tune to double or triple its play time, you can use Audacity to do it. Audacity is a free, open source, cross-platform software program for recording and editing sounds. You open your mp3 file, copy and paste the wave portion after itself as many times as you want. It allows many functions like changing the pitch or its speed, etc. Then export it as a new long playing mp3 file.

Our Collection

Deborah Jefferson and Dave Lucas have been compiling a list of the recordings that folks have given the Association in the last few years. They include 78ís, 45ís, albums and cassettes. There are over 1,000 items. As yet, we have not figured out how to make them available for lending. If you have any experience in such matters, we would love to hear from you at cotsdca@hotmail.com . Here is the list of recordings.
