I agree completely with what some of the others have said. Please make this availible in some format, either downloadable or for CD purchase. I've no doubt people will pay for it.

Are there any plans to make a CD or DVD of this year's Bloomsday event available for sale? I was working all day and couldn't watch. I would love to buy if you would please make it available. I see there is about 5 hours archived, but I really would love to be able to view the entire performance. I did see that you have 2005 available for purchase, but I had a family member reading and I would love to be able to purchase thise year's performance for that reason.

Listening for the first time, I was mesmerized by the brilliant performance of Molly's soliloquy!

Yes, reiterate the plea:

Please make this available to watch online, or to download.

Burn CDs and sell them--I'd buy, and I think people around the world would, too.

I have to reiterate lil'pea's comment. For those of us who had to work either that night or far too early the following morning, and those of us who, due to the vagaries of public transportation, could not have gotten home if we'd been at Symphony Space till the last word, please, please make this available, or at least tell us where and when it is going to be available.

Please!
And thank you.
