A dozen stories from the Peabody Award-winning radio series, Lost and Found Sound, heard throughout 1999-2000 on NPR's All Things Considered. The series producers, The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva) and Jay Allison, started with an idea of a radio series exploring how sound has captured and shaped American history and how the sound of our lives has changed over the last 100 years. Culled from more than 60 stories, this first compilation includes: "Tony Schwartz: 30,000 Recordings Later"; "Gettysburg Eyewitness"; "Cigar Stories" (narrated by Andy Garcia); "Carnival Talkers"; "Sound Restoration"; "LBJ and the Helium-Filled Astronaut"; "Listening to the Northern Lights"; "The Partridge Family Grand Tour"; "Tennessee Williams: The Pennyland Recordings"; and more.
"These people are possessed. By sound. This is the most wonderful collection. The rich, rewarding sounds of life that might otherwise have escaped us. The sounds of the street and the soul." (Peter Jennings, ABC News)
