The letter runs some eighteen hours and contains the voices of most of the important Allied leaders. In all, several hundred tape reels are to be copied.

Jazz - a 13-week radio series, "A Jazz Conversation," presented through the SIU radio network in the fall of 1970, featuring Al Rose, Dan Havens and Herb Smith. Thirteen half-hour tapes.
