--> About this site, how to order, and how to contact us.

Thank you for visiting. This site is dedicated to collecting and offering the entire catalog of Ian Whitcomb's radio program, The IAN WHITCOMB Show, heard from 2010 through 2012 - plus some other collected gems from Ian's fertile brain.

Here are some questions we often receive about this site:

How can I order the shows?

You can obtain the programs in two ways: by direct download as MP3 files, or by ordering an audio CD. Both methods are processed through PayPal.

If you have a PayPal account, you may use it, or you may use any major credit card.

1. Downloads are delivered to you immediately after purchase. After your purchase is confirmed, you will receive a download link via e-mail. The link will redirect you to a download page, where you can save the file to your hard drive. The link will expire after 5 download attempts or 5 days. (If you are unable to download the file(s) within this timeframe, please contact us to re-enable the link(s).

To ensure best quality sound, we create the MP3 files using high bit-rate codecs. This means the files are large, and may take some time to download to your computer. If you have a dial-up or slow broadband connection, be prepared to wait a while.

CD case 2. If you order on CD, we custom create the disc(s) to your order. You receive only the programs you've ordered. No "filler" programs or shows you don't want.

Since this custom recording takes a while, it may be a few days before your discs are shipped. However, they come with a colorful label, in a sturdy storage case. (We think this customized package is worth waiting for.)

3. We also offer some pre-selected shows in themed sets at a discount over the individual show price. You can review them here.

Can I transfer the shows to any audio player I own?

Yes. The files are not copy protected. After purchase, you may load the file(s) onto any device you own. You may also burn the MP3 file to a CD, or convert it to an audio CD with the proper software.

But please remember that The IAN WHITCOMB Show is copyrighted. You may not share the shows with anyone else, upload them to file sharing sites, or use them in public performance or broadcast. Please respect Ian's creative efforts.

Why are you also selling Ian's CDs and books?

Much of the material Ian used to produce his programs comes from his own music and writings. We offer the CDs and books for those who are interested.

PLEASE NOTE: Other sites offer similar merchandise. They are owned and operated by other companies. They are responsible for the content and any information you provide if you order from there.
