Detroit Public Library Ernie Harwell audio collection
- Does anyone live near Detroit and interested in helping acquire some old radio that was thought to be lost forever?
The Detroit public library has a large collection of Ernie Harwell cassettes and reel to reel tapes. I'm looking to see if we can find someone to acquire some of these items for a distribution.They do allow copies to be made for personal use but unfortunately I do NOT live near Detroit.
The Detroit Library has among others:
1956 Colts vs Rams
1940 World Series game 1 (Partial)
9-20-58 Orioles vs Yanks (Wilhelm no-hitter)
1946 Playoff games 1-2 (partial)
Nashville vs Atlanta 6-11-1947
1954 Yale-Army (partial)
Tribute to Harry Heilmann
On reel to reel
1953 Braves vs Giants
1955 Colts vs Rams & Redskins (possibly partials?)
1955 Colts vs 49ers 2nd half
4-14-56 Tigers vs Pirates with Mel Ott
1961 Tigers vs Yanks (partial)
Something called all-time Tigers aircheck from 9-21-69
The descriptions were pretty vague and the library hasn't listened to them to give an accurate description. None of these itmes are available anywhere that I am aware of.
