N B C Kaleidoscope (magazine, hosted by Charles Van Doren)

    (NBC Sunday Afternoons, 1958 - 1959)

    [This show with its wide range of topics from news to 
     entertainment, alternated with "Omnibus" during the 1958
     season. It was hosted by Charles Van Doren, a big winner
     on the Quiz Show "Twenty-One".]

Theme: "Carlsbad Cavern"

    [This experimental piece was recorded with the help of
     electronic musicians Otto Luening and Vladimir Ussachevsky;
     It sounds more like a cue from a monster movie than the
     theme to a Sunday Afternoon network TV series.]
