Unique material

This podcast is a treasure, collecting horrendously obscure material from the early days of recording technology. At the moment of this writing the author has just moved into the 1900s, leaving behind a trail of 1890s snippets of bawdy jokes and army bands, which apparently were the most logical things to record on such primitive equipment. It's all tremendously fascinating, both as a document of recording technology and of what was valued by around-1900 consumer culture.
