So the DJ on this 1936 ML (101.2) was anticipating, 4 years
in advance, the title change.  Or it has a 'typo' - it should
be "Modern American Poets" and not "Modern American
Poetry."  Not a big deal, I guess.

Anyone know of other mistakes on ML DJs or bindings?
(typos, not strange binding fiascos).
