Copies of radio programs and television programs with original music by Bernard Herrmann.
Though known primarily for his film scores, Bernard Herrmann (6/29/1911 - 12/24/1975) was born in New York City and began his career scoring radio dramas. After founding the New Chamber Orchestra in 1931 Herrmann was hired as a staff arranger and conductor at CBS Radio in 1933. He soon became involved in the scoring of radio dramas with the innovative and experimental series Columbia Workshop. He also worked with Orson Welles as music director of the Mercury Theater of the Air. His early work in radio gained him the notoriety to move onto scoring films but he continued to score for radio and later for television.
