Found Sound Friday – No. 2
July 22, 2011
Two sides of a Soundcraft Audition 78 rpm recording blank. This is how people sent audio letters before cassettes were invented. This would have been recorded using a portable record cutting machine similar to this one (on the Sound Preservation Association of Tasmania website).
Labeled simply “Message.” The “Sahara Desert” mentioned by the woman is probably the long-gone Sahara Dining Lounge in Edmonton.
Labeled “Eleanor at about 9 years of age & Ivy tap dance.” I’m a big fan of tap dance on record.
