Howell Rosenbaum

“Only three years before his death Rosenbaum finally acquired a TV, when his brother suggested that rather than carrying records all over the place he could listen to classical music on TV. When his brother visited he saw the TV had a big piece of cardboard on it. “I said, ‘What the hell’s that for?’ And he said, ‘Oh, I covered the damn screen up. I don’t want to see those idiots playing. I just want to hear the music.’. . .”

From Tom Alder’s article on David Howell Rosenbaum. Read the full article here.

  1. I’m constantly impressed by Tom’s research, analysis, personal comments, and writing style. His articles are interesting, add just the right amount of local “color” and read as if he is talking to me as a friend. Whenever I receive 15 Bytes I immediately turn to Tom’s column first. What a gift it is to have Tom write for 15 Bytes and open our eyes to “new” old artists and their work. Thanks 15 Bytes for including Tom’s work in your publication!
