with legendary classical producers such as Max Wilcox and Peter Munves, 
legendary audio archivist Mike Biel speaking about the discovery of the 
recording of Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds that we rely upon to this day, 
Peter Gries speaking about the practice of archiving audio from early 
television broadcasts, Matt Barton from the Library of Congress speaking 
about Marian Anderson’s legendary 1939 concert at the Lincoln Memorial, 
Brad McCoy on the new Library of Congress NAVCC facility in Culpepper, VA, 
Mike Devecka on the behind-the-scenes story of the First Sounds project, 
Seth Winner on Rene Snepvangers, Dennis Rooney on Artur Rodzinski, Gary 
Thalheimer on the recordings of the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Marcos 
Sueiro Bal on Columbia University’s audio archive survey tool, Tim Hawkins 
on the Naropa Poetry Archive, and Steve Rosenthal on the Woody Guthrie 
audio archives reissues and remastering the Rolling Stones catalog.

Our program on Thursday, November 19th will be interesting, as most of them 
are, and is being finalized tonight.

refreshments at 6:30pm)
