    Scope and Contents

    Howard Rhines was a composer, announcer, and program director at Los Angeles classical radio station KFAC. This collection consists of files and recordings on open reel tape, almost all of which are related to KFAC. The majority of tapes are a series of Metropolitan Opera Highlights programs from 1970, although there is one demo recording of a Rhines composition that features Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida and his future wife Deltra Eamon. The files are all related to programming at KFAC and include promotional material from composers and publishers, scripts for transcribed programs, and information on birthdays and other anniversaries for announcers' on-air use.
