Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0786  Shakespeare on Radio

I have purchased tapes of old radio broadcasts from "Fair Pickings" 339
Nassau St., Rome NY 315-337-2576.

I own two Barrymore Shakespeare recordings made from the radio
broadcasts --the label is "Audio Rarities."

Martin Norden's book __John Barrymore: A Bio-Bibliography__ published by
Greenwood has some information on the 1937 radio "Bard-battle."

Remember NBC broadcast the shows over its "blue" network.  The same that
broadcast Walter Winchell (and turned into ABC), it was perceived as
less prestigious. Thus the Shakespearean radio shows on the NBC blue
network are all the more interesting.

Many thanks to Georgianna Ziegler, Bruce Golden, Adrian Kiernander, and
Phyllis Rackin for the clarification of the Montrose reference, and for
the information about Barbara Traister's forthcoming edition of the
Forman mss., which should be very interesting.

Presumably the confusion arose when an editor of the _Rewriting the
Renaissance_ volume inserted a publisher without consulting the author
of the article.  The Pan pb is hard to track down; it also seems to have
had a confusing number of editions or reprintings, but Adrian
Kiernander's information about publication in pb in the same year as the
Weidenfeld and Nicolson accords with the Montrose ref.

Thanks again!

Judy Kennedy
