Following up on Carl's question, here's a link to PDF of my slides from the Feb. meeting:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/63010252/TF-ARSC_NY-150226-MLP_Technical_History.pdf

I think Kim Peach intends to get them up on the ARSC website eventually.

Shameless plug -- I'll be doing a similar presentation for the Minnesota Audio Society on April 21.
The event will take place at the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting in St. Paul. I'll be in the room via
SKYPE. Slides will be projected on-site and music playback will be through the society's
high-quality audio system.

> APRIL 2015 Meeting
>
> 7 P. M. Thursday, 4/16/15
> at the CUNY Sonic Arts Center
> West 140th Street & Convent Avenue, New York or enter at 138th Street off

>
> The Columbia Recordings of Fritz Reiner and the Pittsburgh Symphony
> Orchestra, 1940-1947 Presented by DENNIS D. ROONEY
>
> From January 1940 to November 1947, Columbia recorded the Pittsburgh
> Symphony Orchestra. The sessions in Pittsburgh, first in Carnegie Music Hall
> and then in Syria Mosque, were interrupted for nearly three years by the
> "Petrillo Ban" (1942-44), which coincided with an orchestra shorn of some
> of its best players due to wartime military service. Recordings resumed in
> early 1945, and
> continued at regular intervals each season thereafter. The final Reiner/PSO
> recording, Strauß's Ein Heldenleben, like all of its predecessors, was
> mastered on 16.5-in. lacquer discs rotating at 33-1/3 rpm, the same speed as
> the Columbia Lp, which was launched only a few months later. By that time,
> Reiner had departed Pittsburgh for the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
>
> These Pittsburgh Symphony recordings were the first made under his own name
> by Reiner (1888-1963) who rebuilt the orchestra after his arrival in 1938
> from the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia.
> Building on the reorganizing work of his predecessor, Otto Klemperer, Reiner
> profited from the availability of many émigré players fleeing war and
> fascism, enabling him to quickly improve the orchestra's personnel. This
> program will be part of a survey of all the Pittsburgh Symphony recordings
> to be presented at ARSC's National Conference in Pittsburgh in late May,
> This evening's program will offer an expanded sampling of the PSO Columbias
> in the best sounding available source:
> original 78rpm shellac, Lp reissues and Masterworks Heritage CD reissues,
> the latter produced directly from the original lacquer masters.
>
>
> Dennis Rooney's collecting career began when Harry Truman was in the White
> House. His interest in recordings followed him through subsequent careers in
> broadcasting, writing and audio production. He produced many reissues for
> Sony Classical, the most significant of which was the award-winning
> Masterworks Heritage Line. As a producer and consultant to the record
> industry, he has contributed to many important CD reissues of historic
> recordings. As a member of ARSC, he has been a frequent presenter at
> conferences and workshops, is Classical Music Judge of the Book Awards
> Panel, a member of the Technical Committee since 1996, the Steering
> Committee of ARSC's New York chapter since 2008, and reviews books and
> recordings for the ARSC Journal. He regularly contributes features and
> reviews to THE STRAD and is an occasional contributor to BBC Music Magazine,
> Classic Record Collector, American Record Guide and MusicalAmerica.com.
>
> Our next program will be on May 21, 2015 Guest speaker, Al Schlachtmeyer,
> will present excerpts from U.N. Day and Human Rights Day Concerts, and
> discuss the work involved in preserving and digitizing the World Body's
> audio documents. The program was originally presented at the 2014 ARSC
> National Conference in Chapel Hill, NC
