From a program recorded on February 23, 1976, Charles Amirkhanian interviews the director of Opus One Records, composer Max Schubel, who was visiting the Bay Area while working on music for a film. Opus One specializes in unusual avant-garde music, and its albums are easily found in record stores since all the covers are printed in fluorescent colors. In this interview Schubel talks about his then upcoming new issues and plays test pressings of some of them.
