The advent of the commonly available personal computer took the digital revolution further than some dreamed possible. Charles Amirkhanian and Richard Friedman host a discussion with composer Henry Kaiser and several journalists, including the editors of “Electronic Musician”, “Keyboard”, and “Mac User” magazines.

At the end of the program the panel takes questions from the listening audience.
