Description
A cardboard disc recorded by Tennessee Williams in a New Orleans penny arcade; a home-recorded letter from World War II; the songs of a 1930s fish vendor—this eclectic collection of radio stories and sonic snapshots chronicles how recorded sound has captured and shaped American life. NPR host Noah Adams presents these eleven audible moments of history.

"As the last century came to a close, National Public Radio put out a call to listeners: Help us unearth some audio gems. All sorts of folks dug around in attics and drawers and what emerged from their collected recordings was a series of episodes called 'Lost and Found Sound,' with topics ranging from an eyewitness talking about the Gettysburg Address to New Yorker Tony Schwartz's collection of 30,000 ambient sound and voice recordings. NPR broadcast dozens of episodes. Some of the best are collected here. The cream of the crop: 'LBJ and the Helium-Filled Astronaut' and 'Listening to the Northern Lights.' One hopes many more volumes will follow."—AudioFile
