Very recently, Bob Purse reached out to me through the Shortwave Radio Audio Archive. Bob is the owner and curator of the excellent Inches Per Second audio archive and blog.
Bob’s archive is all about sharing what essentially amounts to lost and found sound: reel to reel recordings he’s discovered at thrift stores, estate sales, in junk piles, etc.
Bob describes his passion for collecting these recordings in this post on WFMU’s blog. I can say that he’s truly a kindred spirit as we both love taking recordings that would otherwise be lost forever and making them freely available online for everyone to enjoy.
Bob has kindly offered up the off-air shortwave radio recordings he’s collected and digitized over the years. We’ll be slowly adding these to the SRAA.
Many thanks, Bob, for sharing your recordings with the Shortwave Radio Audio Archive.
Post readers: I would highly recommend checking out Bob’s numerous recordings and notes on Inches Per Second!
