ESULTATE!!!!!!!

  For some unknown reason, my narration portion of this
 podcast could not be published, leaving you without the
 answers to the "Esultate Quiz" I had prepared. I suggest
 you might want to play the selections (listed below) for
 a friend, and let him/her guess who is who. I do not know
 why this glitch occured.

          (Maybe you can NOT LOOK BELOW!)

Tamagno, Vickers, McCracken, Ralf, Giacomini,Corelli
Di Stefano (his first and last Otello), Martinelli in 1938,
Martinelli's last Otello in 1948. three by Mario DelMonaco:
Buenos Aires 1950 (his first ever), then 1958 and 1971.
Atlantov, Domingo, Frank Porretta III, Vinay, and finally
