Voice on Record: Episode 25 (Gold)


Well, gold, banks and money in general featuring Ogden Nash on banks – just as relevant today as it was when written 80 years ago – Hoffnung on funding for the arts, Humphrey Bogart on the Sierra Madre and a delightful documentary from Stephen Gilmour on a rather unlikely subject.

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. http://sbkw.net/voiceonrecord.php
