Feedback From: Terry Morris (tbiz@austin.rr.com) Sent: August 2012
Hello,
I graduated from a very small town in NW Oklahoma named Taloga in 1970. Our Senior trip consisted of traveling via chartered
bus to Los Angles. While there we were offered free tickets to a taping of The Everly Brothers show that originally aired
July 15th, 1970 . I noticed from your web site it was the second show of the Summer series. I would very much like to get a
copy of that show. Guests included Arlo Guthrie, Marty Robbins and Jackie DeShannon. My entire Senior class, consisting of
20 students, was allowed to sit on stage during the taping and I thought it would be a great surprise to show a taping of it
at our 43rd class reunion. This would not be for any commercial use and I would naturally agree to no further distributions
if required to do so.
If you could provide a location for me to download via internet or via any other means I would most assuredly appreciate it.
I also would be willing to pay any nominal fees for your troubles. Your web site is awesome!
