If Mr. Bergmann is milling about...

You mention on pg. 153 the four people who Shep spoke with on air. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I have a distinct impression of hearing a show my old man recorded sometime in the early 70's in which Shep paid a great deal of attention to an old WOR station break (Dah-b-u, dah-b-u, dah-b-u, dah-b-u, somebody stop me [tock] O-R) and spoke on the phone with the composer of that jingle. (Which would bring the count to at least 5)

I'm trying to get the old man to see if he still has his tapes in Florida, but would at least like to find this show. If anyone knows how I could score a copy, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm also posting this request in the WOR section...

In case Mr. Clavin is also milling about, I hope you got my e-mail identifying a couple of classical pieces...

Keep your knees loose, gang.

spiderman, I listened to that show within the past year. It was a show in which he talked about the history of WOR & he even broadcast part of it through an old-fashioned mike. I believe it was a show from the spring of 1974. I don't remember if he talked w/the composer though.
