Hello. First post here - hoping someone may be able to help? Two part query:
In Ellmann's biography of Joyce (page 715), Terence White Gervais (aka Terence White), an English poet, writer, musician and composer (and most definitely a Joycean), is mentioned as visiting Joyce in 1938, and asking him about the musicality of Finnegans Wake. I'm researching White Gervais - not as an academic, just for personal interest. He died in 1968, and an obituary mentions that he "broadcast a vivid account" of his meetings with Joyce - no further details. Radio, presumably.
I can't track down any record of such a broadcast. But (1) someone else may know? On the other hand (2), I'm wondering if his reminiscences might have been incorporated as part of W R Rodgers's BBC broadcast, "Portrait of James Joyce: Part II: The Artist in Maturity," of February 1950, which gathered together a number of reminiscences. Transcript copies of this broadcast seem to be lying about in various university collections, but has the transcript ever been published, or is it accessible online anywhere? No sound recording seems to have survived.
Any help very welcome! Thanks, Richard Warren.
