Vintage Sounds at NPR

NPR (National Public Radio in the U.S.) is running a series on "Vintage Sounds" -- the disappearance of the sounds of old technology. They're looking for contributions from the public, if anyone happens to know someone with access to a noisy hunk of old machinery. Gee, I might be able to find one around here somewhere...

The first piece ran on Monday and was about film cameras: you can hear the audio and read a transcript on their web site.

To contribute, fill out their contact form with "Vintage Sound" in the subject line.

Neat. They did something like this about 10 or 20 years ago for unusual sounds. Then typewriters would have been normal. Now they would fit the vintage sounds.
