This show features episode 2 of my original composition, Proceedings: A Radio Play, starring Sasha Ruptash as Defendant James C. Ralston and Robert Gross as Prosecuting Attorney Howard Bayer. The text from Proceedings: A Radio Play is taken from a typewritten transcription of a pre-trial hearing that took place in Rochester, NY in 1962. I found the transcript at a flea market in Rochester. Included in this episode are two recordings found in the archive at Visual Studies Workshop. The first was an unmarked track recorded on 16mm magnetic stock, which I played on a Movieola 16mm flatbed and digitized. The second was an open reel 1/4" tape marked "Tim K Moog", played on a Uher tape recorder and digitized.
