This interview is extraordinary!! Thank you so much for making this recording available. Roose-Evans voice and stories are so real and bright.
I am wondering if you know any way of me contacting him, as I am just now reading his memoirs Opening Doors and Windows, and would love to pass on my admiration.
Thank you sincerely,
