Recently, Mr. Gallodoro was featured on the "Omnibus" television program with the distinguished American conductor, Leonard Bernstein, in a solo demonstration which contrasted his mastery of the classical school of reed instrument playing with his understanding of the jazz idiom. Gallodoro's versatility is one reason for his frequent engagement for recording sessions by such conductors as Arturo Toscanini, Alfred Whitman and many others. He records for both Columbia and concert hall labels. Contrary to popular belief the program will be varied and not in a "heavy" vein.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
