BUREAU OF LOST CULTURE – The Self Made Record (02/01/2022)

Soho Radio

We revisit the wonderfully odd, lost culture of the coin-operated machines that allowed ordinary people to make a record of their voice the long before the advent of tape or digital recording.

We are joined by oral historian and broadcaster Alan Dein to hear a selection of recordings of strange, moving ghostly voices from his collection and learn how the records were used to send messages home from the war, record visits to tourist destinations or to capture the sounds of loved ones in a way that had never been possible before.
