AudioGO files for administration
« on: October 29, 2013, 07:01:56 PM »
There\'s been intense concern over at Gallifrey Base concerning this for a few days now, I thought I\'d better mention it here.  Seemingly it\'s more very bad management than lack of sales that\'s caused the crisis:

Bad news if you were hoping to get some BBC audio for yourself or others for Christmas, not to mention their Doctor Who stuff.

I don\'t think I have any AudioGo stuff, the price is a bit steep for what you get (basically books on tape type audios). At least with Big Finish you get full cast recordings. Are the BBC radio releases AudioGo? I guess I could easily find the answer online. If bad management is at fault hopefully a new company can be found who will manage things better...can\'t really pile all this on Big Finish as they have more than enough on their plates now.

Thanks for posting this, Bay. I don\'t use AudioGO but I know there are others on this site that do.

That\'s where I got some of Bert Coules\' Holmes plays from - there was a sale on (as there often seemed to be), so the download was affordable - and I was expecting to do so again. Worrying.

Hmmm....I wonder if the new material would be available for broadcast on BBC Radio? Also wonder who\'s doing the North America distribution?


I saw a link on Facebook the other day, where A Christmas Carol with Tim Curry was being offered for free by Audible with Free Trial Membership. That may still be going on if anyone is interested.

Well the damn thing accused me of being a robot and wouldn\'t accept it! I guess it did and lied to me about it. Sorry. @\'.2\'@

I just noticed something odd, too: the \"Post message\" button was displaying a countdown - \"(2)\", \"(1)\" - even though I hadn\'t posted anything.

Thanks for the link Jan. It\'s a reading not a play from what I gather? Giving CC details gives me the willies, and usually free-trials entail doing that. My fear (panic) is that I\'ll either forget to unsubscribe or they\'ll sting me somehow anyway. So I cower in the corner!

This forum isn't really the place for answers to your very specific question. Essentially The Beebotron deals with radio and audio content : drama, comedy, science fiction, sitcoms, readings, quizzes, series etc. Good luck with your quest though.
