Streaming Audio Files

During the four and a half years of research that went into the writing of the book
'Inventor of Stereo - The Life & Works of Alan Dower Blumlein', a great deal of recorded material was gathered
and used. For the first time, I am making these recordings available on the Official Alan Dower Blumlein Website.
They can be listened to by clicking on the links below or downloaded to you computer hard drive.

Below you find links to the Alan Blumlein streaming audio files.


These files can be listened to while you are online.

You do not need any special audio software plug-ins to listen to the files.
In order to optimise the load time for online listening, you may click on two or more files at once.
