1979 Bob Sherman Interview with Alicia Alonso

Recommended Posts


WQXR (now part of public radio in NYC) has a number of archived radio programs available online, and they've been highlighting one each week on their Facebook page.

Today's link is from 8 July 1979, 34 years ago: it's an interview Bob Sherman did with Alicia Alonso for the "Great Artists" series just as the company was preparing for to end its first North American tour with a three-week run in NYC before returning home for a short while and then heading on a European tour. There are musical excerpts from different ballets, such as "Giselle" and "Spartacus" interspersed with the interview.


For George Jellinek's "The Vocal Scene," while they mention various sponsors, they've removed the commercials from the archived programs, but for this one, they've left in several Manufacturer Hannover commercials. Two speak to the dangers of not having a will and doing proper estate planning, and one rather long one is more of an infomercial with Manny Hanny's officer-economist at the time.
