LOST & FOUND SOUND: Tennessee Williams - The Pennyland Recordings

6.} {LOST & FOUND SOUND: TENNESSEE WILLIAMS: THE PENNYLAND RECORDINGS Part One} — We present a story about one of America's best and most eccentric playwrights. In the late 1940's, Tennessee Williams and his friends made a series of recordings at a Voice-O-Graph, a coin-operated booth at a New Orleans amusement park. The recordings include singing, conversation and comic parodies of Williams most famous plays. This is the first time these home-recordings have ever been broadcast.
