Thanks!

They're PL OK, except for one optional fix. The author's last name is not pronounced in the proper French way, but in a weird, Anglicized way. MAR-kwiss. Yeah, I know. :roll:

Fix 'em if you want, or I'll leave them as they are. Your choice.
Noted though I will leave them as they are should that honestly be alright with you. It is noted in my mind though for any future recordings though please so discount that statement as I just completed the remaining 3 sections for this thread so now it is 5 total with the "just leave it" pronunciation. If I do not get a reply from you that tells me to change them, I will leave them.

I am just gonna have to beg for 21, 22, and 23, despite my resolution to leave the short sections for newbies. I jus wanna do these pieces, cause I need the relief from Dred, which is so darn dredful. May I have them, Please? :?

Absolutely! I'd say that most of these sections are short, so you have little choice if you want to join in. ;)

Here are four short ones:

I thought I had already sent in 26, but I guess not.
The others I decided to re-record. I forget why now.

I don't know why I'm enjoying this poor Old Soak, but I'd love to read a few more.
Would be too much to ask for the final five, 46-50? If so, maybe just the last three.

Thanks, all!

Larry - 46-50 are yours. Have at 'em! I know what you mean about sympathizing with The Old Soak. :)

Now I'll get to PL'ing...

Section 16:
0:31-0:41 - after the intro, you say the section number and title "The History Continued—Prohibition and Winter Weather" but then you say "This LV recording is in the public domain. Section 16: The History Continued—Prohibition and Winter Weather". Please cut out this second "intro". :)

Section 21 - PL OK!

Section 26, 32, 36, 38 - PL OK!

Section 44, 45 - PL OK!

Thanks, Michele!

Very good, except I know you want correct pronunciations.

A row, in the context of it being a fight, is pronounced to rhyme with sow, a female pig. There were several instances in section 22; I didn't time-stamp them.

Okay, 4 married couple "rows" taken care of, all found in the first 9 lines. Easy enough, and I DO appreciate it. :D
