He was questioning if these 239 episodes that were, and still are, licensed to The Antenna Network along with several other Sony series that were unedited, going to be restored to full length. The answer from the rep was, "No. Why should we bother restoring Burns and Allen? They're public domain anyway." That was a good enough source for us. As far the Crosby-Philco Show and tape, that came directly from Les Paul. I pressed him on the year. I thought it was 1946. He stuck to his guns that it was '49. He said those people from Ampex who worked with Bing sold him, or gave him, the same equipment that ABC installed for Crosby in their Hollywood studios into his home to play with!! That's the reel to reel decks that he invented stereo recording on. I interviewed him in 1999. He invited me to his house in New Jersey and regret not going. He was close with Bing as he was with George Burns. That's how I was introduced to Les. He was in his 80s but why should I believe otherwise? He was there.
