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.
There are a number of recordings from Howard Rhines in the Archive of Recorded Sound's Transcription and Instantaneous Disc
