I'd have to dig out the lp and see if I'd noted anything else..possibly not.

Speaking of inaccuracies, he said, changing the subject, we finally watched 
last year's New York Philharmonic New Year's Eve concert of music by Gershwin 
and Bernstein. The host kept referring to Gershwin accepting a commission for 
the Concerto in F from Walter Damrosch (okay) and the Philharmonic (noop, the 
New York Symphony, which eventually merged with the Philharmonic). And then he 
credited the glissando in the Rhapsody as being the creation of "Russ" Gorman 
(at which point I screamed ROSS and scared the crap out of my wife and cat).
