Eighty-five-year-old Don Hunter plays us a few of his acoustic "trophies" from a lifetime of recording the sounds of his Pacific Northwest. The Eugene, Oregon man has been making stereo recordings of his region since the late 1950s — and has been interested in sound since he was a boy. We hear a "planer," fog horns and a Douglas Fir being cut down.
