Audio Recordings

The Philomathean Society has embraced the phonograph and other accouterments of the Age of Radio, and consequently from time to time produce audio offerings. These are typically either compositions/compilations/random creative works, or they are recordings of Society events.

In the both cases, despite any claims of subversion in the posts of these audio files, please be aware that all of the recordings below were made and offered to the public with the express permission of their creator(s). If you are the creator of any of the audio below and feel that permission was not in fact so granted, please contact the Moderator without delay.
