Probably Robert Angus who sent it. I just ran across these cassettes last week 
and had never played them. Of historical interest, but I've never heard so many 
nobodies and rotten ensembles and bathtub mezzos mixed in with one or two 
actually talented people, and so much ado about "huge crowds" when there's 
obviously nobody there. But these two chunks of Rex Stewart on remote are worth it.
