Joe, you seem to have some Italian background.  I was born surrounded by father's Italian family in Philadelphia, and have some memory of the generosity, and wish I had more. My closest relative there died 2 years ago.  Soon I may be able to outline my beginning to use a recording microphone and the Audacity Software. So far I haven't developed this enough and my best bet for the final steps of recording will be a studio in Bristol, VA. A friend at a radio station introduced me to the equipment there.

 

Nevertheless, the Audacity software is excellent. Call me and I can show you how I use it for practice at my home or ask around where you live.
