In his Hans Moennig story, mentions a student of Leonard =
Sharrow's named Fred Austin. For the record, his name is Fred Alston =
and, in my opinion, he was one of the great talents ever to play the =
bassoon. He was principal Bassoon in the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra =
in the early seventies. He took a leave in the fall of 1976 and never =
returned to playing. Last I heard, he was the superintendent of an =
aparment building in Manhattan.
