As the curator of our Quest for Sound, Jay Allison tells us, listener Jonathan Mitchell found a cassette his grandfather sent him when Jonathan was a little boy. Grandpa Mitchell wanted to pass down his knowledge about playing the harmonica, but at the time, Jonathan didn't care too much. He cares now. Lost and Found Sound presents his story.


Produced by Jonathan Mitchell with Jay Allison.
