Subject: [78-L] question about inventorying a collection

Any transcription experts on the list?  I'm going to Cape Cod to help the
daughter of a former broadcaster (now deceased-- died at age 90, and was in
radio off and on for more than five decades) with some inventorying of
materials from his vast collection. He programmed his own radio shows in the
late 30s/early to mid-1940s, and had a bunch of 78s, most of which are now
sitting in his garage. Because they were from the 30s and 40s, they probably
aren't very rare, am I right? (I'm trying to determine what is worth saving,
what is worth selling, what is worth giving away.)  But he also saved some
transcriptions, which he had played on the air. For example, he once told me
about playing some music by Peg LaCentra with Artie Shaw's first orchestra,
from 1937.  He said they were "originally Thesaurus transcriptions."  Not
sure what the history of Thesaurus transcriptions was-- I know about some
companies, but not that one.
