Just returned to the site but am ***** if I can find them - anybody had any better luck ?"

If you go to the link I posted on the wikipedia page

(it is https://finding-aids.lib.unc.edu/20003/#d1e19219)

then do a "find" for the words "john reilly" you will find 9 instances. Click on links marked "audio" a couple of times and you will eventually find a link marked e.g. "20003_FS0661_0001.mp3" which is the audio file for "SFC Audio Cassette 661: John Reilly: tape 1 of 8: Side 1". If you have flash enabled you should also see a little player for the sound file just above the description.

I think it takes a little while for the file to load in the player but I got it to work for me - the first song on that tape/side is "The Bonny Green Tree", and around 10 mins in you get "The Raggle Taggle Gypsies" and so on.

I looked for a way to save the file locally as an mp3 without success, but there may be a way - there are a few links offered but I could not get anything saved which actually contained the audio - but others may have better luck...

Regards - Tony
