I too would like to hear about this. It seems the film "TRK" has tooooo many
songs/verses, which were edited (/cut) over the years. I used to think till
very recently that I had all songs/verses from it, and then heard a verse
"udayambastagatambu kEtuvu hima vyoohamun chuTTiraa ...." (a chaaTuvu, not by
G though!) from the film.

Yes, he was with AIR. His contributions to arts in AP are tremendous, 
esp. the revival of Kuchipudi dance.

A small request! Can we please keep those others' (personal) matters away 
from the list. I am saying this because, the person you are above refering 
to lives in USA and has access to e-mail and internet.
