Lost & Found Sound: Bride, Groom & Microphone

Noah and Linda escort us through a series of recordings of weddings from the 40s, 50s and 70s. Not many people put their weddings on wire, tape or record — but some of our "Quest For Sound" callers did. We hear a professionally narrated wedding from Manhattan, a "flower power" wedding from Ohio in the 1970s, a traditional church wedding in Mississippi, and even a wedding on the radio. This story is part of our series LOST & FOUND SOUND, a collaboration between independent producers and NPR.
