Question is now, how to find this stuff. One of the shows, the 15-April-1958
show is available through Historic Films Data base for something like $750
and they don't like to do collectors. Does anyone know offhand of any
schools or repositories of material like this? The LOC has one or two; the
National Archives SONIC was down when I tried, but any help would be greatly
I don't know where to find the ones you listed but I recently put a rare Toast of The Town VHS on Ebay which featured Rogers and Hammerstein and the original cast of "Pipe Dream" (along with Lucy and Desi. I was surprised it didn't sell. I don't know the source of the tape. It was comercially issued about 15 years ago. So, none of the above but if anyone is interested in this one, contact me off list at [log in to unmask]
