Voice on Record: Episode 27 (Nabokov and the Russians)

Primarily Vladimir Nabokov reading from Lolita and other works but also fragments of a strange Russian record I found, and which I can’t decipher at all, although it may be people reading Pushkin…

Lolita read by Vladimir Nabokov, produced by Arthur Luce Klein.

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
