Re: [ARSCLIST] Questions regarding audio collection of a university-based black radio series


We have a collection of programs entitled " News And Views - Black
Perspective " that were produced and aired by WSYR - Syracuse N.Y. -
These were recorded and broadcast in the mid to late 1970's- perhaps
later, perhaps earlier - if memory serves. If I remember correctly,
Dennis Dowdel was the host for the majority, if not for of them. They
aired once a week-also if memory serves.
Sorry I can't remember more.

They are all on .75 inch full track format tape recorded at 7.5 IPS.
All are originals as these were the broadcast masters.

I haven't had time to examine or audition them - there are many.

I am accessing an audio collection of 266 1/4" reel-to-reel audiotapes

of a weekly radio series entitled "Soul of Reason," which aired on
AM in New York from 1971-1986. The series was co-produced by WNBC
Radio's Community Affairs Division and the Institute of Afro-American

Affairs at New York University. The program's host was Dr. Roscoe C.

Brown, Jr. The series was created to address the issues of African-
American and Latino communities, and was an outgrowth of the
ethnic/cultural studies programs that emerged at American universities

during and after the civil rights era.

I'm trying to determine the uniqueness of this particular series. I
wondering if anyone on the list knows of other university-based radio
series that developed out of black studies departments/programs
like "Soul of Reason." Additionally, I am looking for archives that
have audio collections of comparable radio series. Any assistance is
greatly appreciated. You can reply to me off list.
