Wanted: KRAB Program Guides

An appeal to former KRAB listeners, subscribers, and bystanders:

Program guides published during the first 3 years were assembled into bound editions. The 1963 guides were in a legal size (8.5 x 14") dark brown folio, and the 1964 to 1965 guides bound in 5.5 x 8.5" cloth. During the troubles of the mid-1980's these copies were "borrowed" from KRAB volunteers, and never returned. We keep hoping that whomever assumed possession will share them with us long enough to scan copies.

Greater confusion has no person created:

There is some dispute as to when the guides started - In Guide Nbr 200, Aug 1970, Greg Palmer wrote that the first guide was for the period Jan 7 to 13, 1963. The bound edition was at his fingertips, so he should have known.

Complicating this, however, Lorenzo in The Radio Papers attributes the essay of the Feb 11, 1963 guide to "The First Program Guide". Perhaps the essay of Jan 7 was repeated in the Feb 11 guide? What are we to believe? The earliest numbered guide we have is Number 14, Jul 4, 1963.

The archive is missing the following 77 guides. Should you have copies of any of these, will you share them so that they can be scanned?
