Totally fascinating

I really love the radio podcasts about early recordings. Simultaneously a lesson in history and technology and art

iFoundMolly ,

Fantastic

Just so cool. The episodes from the 1930’s are like entering an auditory museum. And the contemporary episodes (2018 & 2019) have a really eclectic mix of music. Probably 2/3 of which I’ve never heard before, but I really appreciate the wide variety. What an excellent project. My favorite recent podcast discovery, thanks to being featured on The Browser newsletter.

ChiClif ,

New listener and love it.

Thanks for doing this! How cool.
