From Dan Witter:  “Track [1] is the announcer’s intro to the live radio broadcast of the Philly Orchestra & VF performance of 1812 on Jan 27, 1970 (I think was the exact date); 70th anniversary of the orchestra and Ormandy’s 70th birthday. As I recall, President Nixon attended the performance. And Track [2] is the actual performance.”

Thank you so much, Dan Witter, for bringing these concert recordings and those of the broadcast from the Academy of Music!

    Great transition to new software…thanks so much…though I noticed one can’t get to Philly Orchestra sound files…am I correct?

    Thanks much for all your efforts….perhaps my new software with Bill Gates’ Windows 10 “features”
