The dates for these do not show up in the documentation on hand for
the Victor discography being undertaken by University of Calif., Santa
Barbara. We do have a bit of information. The prefixes are "BS-T,"
indicating that they were tests, or trials. Also, Ted Fagan's and Bill
Moran's notes indicate that they were recorded in Koussevitzky's
office. We have no documentation to confirm that, however. I'm
curious, how do you know that they were recorded in 1935? The numbers
fit more comfortably into the spring, 1936 range.
