Sanders, not Saunders.

He has a pretty good voice, and that's a cool blog. Unless his estate has a particular problem with the post, I don't see any harm in letting people know about music that would otherwise be lost.

I find that braindead megaphones have a warmer sound than CDs anyway.

I prefer Sea Oak to CD.

Sanders had a fine, strong bass-baritone -- so attractive, in fact, that when he was cast in the film of Call Me Madam opposite Ethel Merman, one of the songs she sang in the stage version of the show ("Marrying for Love") was reassigned to him.

He also sang an aria from Verdi's Simon Boccanegra on Tallulah Bankhead's radio show: I've looked all around for an aircheck of that episode, but it doesn't seem to have been preserved.

Recent George Saunders post in which I am on record as lamenting that is not about George Sanders.

Eat my dust AV!

Dear Science,

Please clone this man's larynx and give me one.

Alright, count me among those disappointed that this isn't actually about Saunders. Until I actually listened. What a voice.

This 'Not on CD' site is amazing! Just downloaded myself some Andrés Segovia.
