About Bolometric Corrections

Does anyone know where a full list of bolometric corrections for all spectral classes (from O to M) can be obtained? I have consulted several tables of corrections but all of them have "gaps" in them-for example, none have the correction for a star of spectral class B1, or class G4. These tables generally go by fives-they list the correction for stars of class B0, then B5, then A5, and so on. I would like the correctons in between.
I know that there is a way to calculate these corrections, but it requires measurements that I cannot take with the instruments I have.
