[ARSCLIST] "Men of HiFi" Harry Maynard tapes
In my Christmas card this year from Natalie and Harry Maynard,
Natalie asks if I would know what to do with Harry's "Men of HiFi"
radio show tapes.

I would suggest digitizing the tapes upon acquisition -- I could of
course do that <shameless plug>, but there are no strings related to
my doing that attached.
I don't know about the copyright ownership of these recordings so I
don't know if they could be redistributed. I could perhaps find out
if that was important to the institution who might be interested in
