Arrangement: The interviews are arranged in alphabetical sequence by surname of interviewee. Most of the interviews have hard copies, ranging from transcripts and digests, to notes. Usually, upon completion of an interview, notes were compiled on persons and bands mentioned during the talk. These notes are rough outlines, of only limited value to the researcher. Digests represent a more coherent, albeit abbreviated version of the interview. All highlights are present, while the casual remarks have been left out. Most of the hard copies available are in the digest format. Transcripts are word-for-word renderings of the interview, allowing a patron to read along as the tape is played.
Access Restrictions: This collection is open for research.
