My ears are not as discerning, and I find the Joe
Frank I listen to on mp3 to be good enough for me.
Modern car stereo and home DVD machines play MP3

As for cost, Joe saves replication and fulfillment
costs if he sells collections of shows. Also, he's got
to consider the competition, which, frankly, is his
own web site, where shows stream for free.

Since Joe's production costs were paid by public radio
long ago, he can afford to produce low-cost
collections. Essentially, it's almost all profit!

So, yeah, a C-note for a collection of shows on DVD
would be OK. A group of shows on CD in MP3 format for
$25 or $35 would be better.
