Laser & Holography Talk Show
holotalk internet radio show

Years: 1997 to 2009


INTRODUCTION: Welcome to the Archive

HoloTalk began broadcasting on the Internet in 1997. This web page provides MP3 files of every known show that has been broadcast from 1997 thru 2009, providing over 100 total hours of programming.

You can enjoy these MP3 audio files in several ways. You may listen to them right on your computer by choosing a show of interest. You may also transfer these MP3 files to a portable device, and listen on the go. Some of the earliest files do not contain any ID information. You may wish to add your own titles or notes.

In 1997, HoloTalk was streamed on the web with the majority of people having either 14.4k or 28.8k dial-up modems. You will notice differences in sonic quality between the earlier and later broadcasts. As connection speeds increased to 56k, ISDN, and finally cable modems, higher quality audio broadcasts followed as well. The remastered MP3 files on this page accurately represent the sonic experience of each given year: you are hearing the files exactly as they were originally heard.

There are too many people to thank individually for this new online archive, however two very important sources are ENTER.NET, provider of HoloTalk for many years; and the International Holography Fund for its support.

If you're new to HoloTalk, I welcome you. For my "old timers", thank you for your many years of listening. And for my illustrious guests, it was an honor.

Your Host,
Frank DeFreitas
