I don't think it was recorded, but one of the highlights of the 1987 
ISEP meeting in England (other than my pres. address of course) was 
the "Colonial" protistologists (from USA, Canada, Australia) 
serenading our European colleagues with Two of J.O. Coriss' 
compositions: "On the Phylogeny of Protists" and "Cell on the Move", 
to the tunes of "Bicycle Built for Two" and "Home on the Range", 
respectively. I'll send you the words if you want them.
