You are invited to join us next week for the Texas Chapter of the Association for Recorded Sound Collections' Fall Meeting!
Our speaker hails from Woodland Hills, Colorado. Bill Cook has spent a lifetime in the recording, radio and film business, including a stint as recording engineer for Radio Recorders, under contract to the Armed Forces Recording Service (AFRS).
He will be discussing the development of sound recording, and will share personal reminiscences of artists and entertainers that he has known, including Ruth Etting and Nick Lucas.
Bill is a serious record collector, with around 25,000 radio transcriptions in his library. Currently, he and his wife Sally are compiling electronic discographies of the various transcription libraries.
Here are the particulars:
Date: Wednesday, October 13 from 7-9 PM
Location: Houston Community College Central Campus, 3517 Austin St. (just east of Main and south of Holman) - the meeting will be held in the Recital Hall (Room 115) of the Fine Arts Center
Directions: Approach Austin St. from Alabama St.; turn north on Austin from Alabama; then go one block and turn right; then make an immediate left into the parking garage. There's plenty of free parking in any space that doesn't have a reserved sign on it. The parking garage is connected via a covered walkway to the Fine Arts Center. Once parked, just go through the short walkway (on the north side of the garage) and enter the FAC. Proceed to Room 115, which is just to the left of that entrance.
Hope to see you there!
