Man I got my copy in a garage sale for $5 and thought I did well.

Interesting story about this set: I found this triple LP set in a local record shop yesterday (25 May 2017) in the "Various" bin in the back room of the store. It's the first such radio show that I've found in a record shop and not purchased off of eBay. The price sticker said $25, which I was fully prepared to pay. When I dropped it on the counter with my other items, the owner glanced at the price sticker and said:

"Oh, that won't be twenty-five."

I said fine and assumed it would be slightly more. He then looked at me and said:

"You see how that price sticker is white?"

I did, and recognized that all of my other purchases had bright red stickers on them. He continued:

"That sticker is so old I don't even use those stickers anymore! That sticker means it's been sitting in that back room since... probably the nineties!"

He thought for a moment and asked:

"How does four bucks sound?"

Four dollars? Not twenty five? Ummm... YES.

I paid $4 for this set, and it's the best price I've ever paid for radio transcription discs. And I have quite a few of them. And for the record, it's not like the guy didn't know what he had. He's been in business for decades, and used to get copies of radio transcription shows all the time from a local radio station programmer who traded them for compact discs. It's just that it had been sitting for so long that he was happy to see it go to a good home.

The moral of the story: Hell, I don't know. I'm just happy I got so lucky!
