Kindle, Nook, I-Pad, and others now have all of the Nero Wolfe books in electronic format. In addition, many of the non-Wolfe writings of Rex Stout, as well as books about Nero Wolfe and about Rex Stout are also available in e-book format(s).
Most of the Wolfe books are available as audio books, narrated by Michael Prichard. However, Saul Rubinek also recorded a number of Wolfe books prior to his role as Lon Cohen in the 2001-2002 A&E series, A Nero Wolfe Mystery.

Nero Wolfe Produces a Record Album
OK -- So it's an '80s (audio) bootleg operation of a U2 Rock Concert using our intrepid sleuth as the label monicker.
Here are the front/back of a U2 record album under Nero Wolfe label. The album, "Into the Heart" was apparently created from an illicit recording of a concert at the London Lyceum Theater 12/20/1981.
These images were posted on e-bay, so unfortunately, they are not completely legible; that's why the transcriptions, below, contain "????" markings.

Nero Wolfe Stamps
The republic of San Marino, a land-locked city-state surrounded by Italy, issued a commemorative stamp set, Grandi Investigatori, in 1972 (postmark of stamps). The image of Nero Wolfe is probably Tino Buazellli, the actor who played Nero Wolfe in the 1969 Italian television production of Nero Wolfe.
Nicaragua issued a stamp featuring Rex Stout & Nero Wolfe on an anniversary of Interpol (Interpol Aniversario"). Click here to view images of the stamps: Nero_Wolfe_Stamps.pdf.
