Arkangel is offering all of their WS recordings, 36 unabridged plays, in
one package in two months- see BarnesandNobles, for example, for
reasonable price.

Unfortunately I'm told that compact discs also deteriorate over time.
I've heard anywhere from 20-30 years is their life expectancy. But we
need to be always mindful to preserve these recordings when new modes of
technology come along. How about preserving them as MP3s? If preserved
with backup, even the crash of a computer cannot erase them from
existence.
