Glenn Miller Civilian Band
Airchecks - Poor Quality



Miller Civilian Band Home
Site Home



These are airchecks that I have determined to be of poor quality for
one reason or another. Pinched sound, distortion, cut short, noise, etc.
I place them here for your perusal. You may not agree with my choices.
Enjoy!
