Overview

The second volume of the LOST & FOUND SOUND collection explores how recorded sound has shaped and captured the history of the last 100 years. Drawing from the archives and attics of the nation, this historic and intimate collection of radio documentaries presents a compelling array of sonic pioneers and legends, eccentric collectors, and original American voices. Highlights include, haunting audio letters from a soldier in the foxholes of Vietnam, the surprising tale of Liberace and the Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band, the voices and stories of Mohawk iron workers at the World Trade Center, and a 1977 home recording made by Francis Ford Coppola and his five-year old daughter Sofia. Funny, historic and deeply moving, this audio time capsule of American life begs to be listened to again and again.
