Needless to say, this list does not include programs for which I have served in other capacities...and I have also chosen to exclude such relatively informal 'conversational-series' as the 10-week 'Music of Arnold Schoenberg' (1974) or a 21-week glorified discography entitled 'The Art of Glenn Gould' (1969). It seemed to me that only programs which, in some way, attempted an assault on conventional radiophonic barriers deserved to be represented and I hope you will agree with the relative exclusivity of this approach."  Folds and light creasing, else fine.  Together with photocopy of Gould's handwritten draft.
