Caveat emptor as always, but even more so than usual on the shortwave interception set—four discs plus an 80-page booklet in a separate jewel case, listing on amazon.com for $67.98 total. Quite a pretty penny unless you’re even more amused than I am by the idea of Kraftwerk’s “Numbers” accidentally translated ad infinitum into dozens of tongues. And I got it for free, remember.
