Don't diss these records.  The analysis is often terrific- the Haydn 102 is 
particularly outstanding.  Many of the analysis examples are separarely 
recorded for this series and dissect the music in a way not possible by just 
cutting up a complete recording.  Bernstein used this technique in some of 
his TV talks as well.

I give copies to friends who've played in bands and are otherwise pop music 
savvy to bring them into the tent.  It gives them an idea of a further level 
of muiscal; compexity- form, subtle thematic and harmonic connections that 
explain why one symphonic movement is organically connected with another, 

Someone should find the tapes and, using the same or similar scripts, 
replace Sherman's drawly voice with a that of a more ordinary announcer and 
reissue them.
