Before that, members of the Space Association had been making recordings for their own enjoyment, for transcription to "Space Association News" and for lending to members.
Most of these recordings were not of broadcast standard, and have never - and will never - be broadcast on "The Space Show".
They are offered here for the patient and attentive listener.
Additionally, members of the Association had been involved in other broadcast media. A few of those guest appearances were recorded, and are also offered here.
