In 1991, he wrote a book, Inside Music, which was published by Anchor Books. Now in its tenth printing, it is still available. The ISBN number is 978-0385417747. Three of Karl's more popular programs were recorded: Story of the Bells, Song and Dance, and The Romantic Piano were produced in the early 90s, and were best sellers on the Wireless phone store run by Minnesota Public Radio, out-selling the Garrison Keiller recordings for awhile. One album, of Jewish holiday music, remains on the shelf because of copyright clearance difficulties on some of the material used. Sadly, even the original three are no longer available.

The program received two coveted George Foster Peabody Awards for excellence in broadcasting during its long run, and Karl Haas was presented with the National Endowment for the Humanities George Frankel Medal at the White House, by President George H W Bush. In addition, Karl Haas was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1997, the first classical music broadcaster to be so named.

This final week of broadcasts on WCLV has featured two Adventures in Good Music programs each day. Cue sheets for these and other related articles will probably stay at the station's website through August. Listers/readers are encouraged to send their comments To read what others have said, look for the photo of Karl Haas on the home page, and proceed accordingly.

As a special bonus, the station will feature the hilarious parody done by John Sarley in the late 70s -- Adventures in Good Cooking with Dr Karl Hasbeen. It will be on the Weekend Radio Show of 30 June at 10pm, and possibly also on Friday Funnies today (29 June) at 5:15pm.
