  1. Great show. Since then I’ve listened to a bunch of BT online, and am itching to get my ears on the special copy of Sham Rock. with the built-in GPS tracker ;p

    I already know who’ll be the next recipient; my Irish brother in law.

    Did Randy mention when the tracker will go live? Do I just purchase from CD-baby and wait for an announcement on their site, or will it be a special purchase?

    1. I don’t think the discs are for sale, yet. I think is still in beta. I will let everyone know as soon as Randy updates me when that changes.

      For now, I’ll consider you on my list to choose from to receive the disc Randy gave me. If no one else responds by the end of the month, the disc is yours.

    2. I fired off an email to Randy the other day. He still plans on pushing some of the TMD CDs to CD Baby but it will take some time to do so and for them to cycle through the existing discs. He’ll send me a heads up when the TMD versions are available for sale and I’ll let everyone else know here and on the podcast.
