Sound Beat is a daily, 90 second program
highlighting the holdings of the Syracuse University Libraries’ Belfer Audio Archive, one of the largest sound archives in the United States.
Each episode features a recording from the Archive, and an entertaining historical backstory.
The recordings feature popular music performances – old favorites, rare gems, and some never heard before… from Cab Calloway to the castrated stars of Italian opera, you’ll hear it all on the Sound Beat!
Sound Beat episodes also feature speeches and spoken word performances from some of the great thinkers, political figures and luminaries from the late 19th and early- to mid-20th centuries – people like Thomas Edison, George Bernard Shaw, Amelia Earhart, Albert Einstein, and Theodore Roosevelt.
