Voice On Record

Episode 8: Help!

Get slimmer, learn about better bowling, phonetic punctuation, relaxation techniques, how to disco-dance like the professionals – these are just a few topics featured on the many self-help and instructional records released over the years.

Voice On Record is produced and presented by Sean Williams. Each episode features a selection of recordings of the human voice which have been preserved on vinyl. Historic events stand alongside esoteric guides to better bowling. Arid studio recordings are juxtaposed with location recordings rich with fascinating incidental sounds.
