Upon listening to the end of the second of the Richard Rodgers programs on "Celebration" (*LDC 50484, end of track 8), host Alan Dell says that Richard Rodgers will be 73 years old on his upcoming birthday. In this case, the approximate date listed on the CD container (ca. 1973) is incorrect, since Rodgers birth year is 1902. So the actual approximate year of the radio broadcast should be in 1975--CMR.
