The Newport Library is still selling some of the late David Ogden Stiers’ collection of music CDs. The library says there’s still plenty available from the collection from the lifelong actor’s musical favorites.
David Ogden Stiers, actor-conductor and philanthropist, known for portraying Dr. Charles Emerson Winchster III during the long running M*A*S*H TV series, died last year and left hundreds of CDs to the Newport Library – most of them never opened. Sunday they went on sale for $0.50 each. Most are from classical music composers, but the collection includes a good number of jazz, movie scores, light opera, and modern discs and some classic radio and comedy like the Goon Show, Stan Friedman, Tom Lehrer, and more. So stop by the Newport Library and take home a little bit of David’s musical preferences.
