Recently posted five programs from the year 2007 and they can be accessed through the 2007 playlist page. I believe that is all the shows from 2007 that I have recordings of. From this point on I’ll be working chronologically instead of haphazardly. I rediscovered another show featuring 78 RPM records , these from a large Flea Market sale.
This show from March 16, 2010, was curated by cartoon historian, Tim Fay, and marks the second time that he was a guest DJ. The first time was music from the 1920’s & 1930’s. This time it is music from, inspired by and cashing-in on the cartoon / pop-music crossovers of the 1960’s & 1970’s.
In my own archive, there are 120 + digital Dig Up the Roots shows, and 50 + shows on cassette. I have started editing the digital files chronologically and placing them online. Another new feature is that I am making the show title links active on the Playlists page. All of the shows below are from 2007. The first batch of new recordings include:
I was recently contacted by the blog Arcane Radio Trivia, for an interview about the Dig Up the Roots radio show. Always willing to shamelessly promote myself, I agreed. Please follow the link to find out more.
Every once in awhile an unmarked cassette tape surfaces and this one is a treasure! Recorded on September 21, 2006, this radio show features Doc Rock presenting the music of George Jones. From the earliest recordings made in his producers living room spanning a 50 + year recording career. This was a nice surprise and it is great to hear his voice again. Check it out, tell your friends.
The 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010 playlists are now available. Now you can find more source information about those nether, lost and haunted recordings and artists of traditional music. Here is an article about that show from August of 2004 published in The Mississippi Rag.
One of my favorite sub-collections in my collection of 150+, 78 RPM records from Brazil. That link will explain it a little. This is a group of records I’ve wanted to archive since I got them, but you know, this and that and time passes on.
I’m happy to start this project finally and will be working label by label. Which seems obvious now… I’ll be working in alphabetical order, starting with the 18 Continental Records, and featuring pictures of the records and sleeves. In this group, 14 of the 18 Continental records came in original or period paper sleeves.
I’ve been spending more time recently with some audio remastering projects and have rediscovered 1) How much I like doing this and 2) How good I am doing this stuff. Here is the quiet launch of me doing Audio Archeology again. If you have old records and tapes that you want digitized, please contact me.
For those of us of certain age, who used to hang out in the later part of the 20th century … mix tapes made for yourself and given to friends might be an early equivalent to contemporary social media. Might not. We here at the DUTR studios have been digitizing cassettes and reel 2 reel recordings recently and want to share some of these wonderful old mix tapes. These mixtape recordings will each be presented as one long file, not broken up by song or piece, just like a mix tape.
We were recently really thrilled to work with the archive for legendary jazz DJ Leigh Kamman. We were provided with amazing archive radio interviews from the 1940’s through the mid 1960’s and provided a visual slideshow. Interviews include Woody Herman, Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum, Joe Turner and Henry ‘Red’ Allen.
