For anyone who might be interested in attending, I've listed some information below on a Tuesday, December 19 Recorded Sound public hearing, to be held at The Princeton Club of New York.  This hearing will serve as part of the process to prepare the National Recorded Sound Study and Plan. On November 29 we held a public hearing in Los Angeles. Below is a list of witnesses scheduled to testify.  Names and times subject to change. Thanks, Steve Leggett
