The Alan Farley Collection consists primarily of recordings made for the radio program Book Talk recorded on audio cassette
tapes, digital audio tapes and compact discs. Book Talk airs on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco, California, though some of
the recordings are used for other radio programs Farley hosts on KALW, such as the show Open Air.
