In the early days V-discs were also mined from live performances. I did 
not know that they had switched to commercial recordings.

At some point the AFRS and V-Discs both switched from live to commercial 
it would seem. I am wondering when and why. Perhaps commercial sources 
were just easier/less work to acquire?
