audio materials?

Hi all,

I'm kind of a language nut, and now I'm focusing on Latin :) I'm going through some of the textbooks offered on Textkit and they look pretty good! I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations of good sound recordings for Latin, i.e., someone whose pronunciation of Latin is considered by most if not all of the community to be correct reading a Latin text.

I have a decent enough understanding of pronunciation thanks to the textbooks, but I think having something to listen to would enforce these basics.

I'm looking for something in the range of free to inexpensive. Spending $20 or so on some decent materials is okay for me, spending $200 not so much at the moment. I've hunted around on YouTube a little, though the comments sections of certain videos leads me to question the quality of said videos.

Check the comments over at http://latinumstore.blogspot.com/
When it comes to extensive audio, you really don't have a lot of options, if you are interested in restored classical.

The material on my youtube channel is all free, and is quite extensive. My old iTunes podcast, which I started in 2007 ( when my pronunciation wasn't as good as it is now...) is now extinct, as the host company went bust.

You can find links to Latinum on Youtube, and to Schola here, and my other audio here:

I run http://latinum.org.uk which provides the Adler Audio Latin Course, other audio materials, and additional free materials on YouTube.
