Raiding Our LPs – this month on Sound Beat

We’ve loved combing Belfer Audio Archive’s vast collections of cylinders, 33′s, 45′s, Diamond Discs, and 78′s…

We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be adding…VINYL!

Starting this month we’ll pepper LP’s into the mix, including an introductory episode featuring one of Bob Dylan’s finest, as well as Nina Simone’s playful take on the story of Adam and Eve.

Every episode allows us to digitize a record from the Archive, while preserving the original for future appreciation by researchers. Thanks to campus support grants from groups like the National Endowment for the Arts, we’re able to offer the show free to you and your listeners.

From vaudeville to vinyl, you’ll hear it all on Sound Beat!

Yes, We Have No Bananas…we had no bananas in May this June on Sound Beat

This month on Sound Beat we’ve got our usual stock of unusual stories behind some of your favorite recordings.
For example, the disputed origins of “Yes, We Have No Bananas” and its connection to one of the greatest art hoaxes of all time. Then there’s Harry Belafonte’s signature tune, recorded in the year he and a couple of famous friends crossed a major journalistic color barrier. To top it all off, we’ve got the tale of the clever queen Scheherazade, and how she stayed her execution through some nimble storytelling of her own.

These are just a few of course; for a sample of our usual fare, please check out www.soundbeat.org for more.

Each episode helps us to preserve and protect archived sound recordings from the Belfer Audio Archive at Syracuse University, one of the largest archives in North America.

And best of all, it’s free to you and your listeners
