1951 Radio Transcription - Boston Bookmobile Driver Interview

Audio Preservation staff continues testing and refinements of NEDCC's IRENE 2D process this week.

The Boston Public Library provided this sample radio transcription on a 78 rpm instantaneous lacquer disc .


The recording is an interview by Boston's WNAC radio with one of the city's dedicated bookmobile drivers.

Classic audio snapshot of an era. (And classic Boston accent!)
