We invited listeners to phone us at 202-408-0300 and tell us about recordings they have saved, from their families, friends, public figures. Quest for Sound Curator Jay Allison tells us how we might use their material and why we care. Allison's own father made recordings of his kids from childhood, and we hear examples. We ask listeners to merely call and tell us the story behind what they have, not to send actual tapes or records. We're looking for dictaphone tapes, novelty sounds, answering machine tapes, etc.
