16 Things That Must Not Be Forgotten

Things That Must Not Be Forgotten

He chose 50-100 Lps, took them home, cleaned and restored, digitized, put on the catalog, gave them names, photographed their covers and broadcast them. He digitizes only those things which are not on the Internet.

Once Yuri got a whole collection of Soviet radio programs. That was a very popular program, every guest attended it once that is why it was considered unique. Joe Dassin was one of the guests. Even France lacks a similar interview. People who participated in creation of the programs say that no record of them were preserved. They were very happy to know that somebody managed to restore them.

It is much easier to digitize a book than a sound. You need to do it online, have qualitative equipment and be ready to work with it at the professional level.

    A true historian. Radio entertainment was a cool thing, you used your imagination. Many years ago my dad bought a compilation of old US broadcasts: The Green Hornet, Jack Benny, Ella Fitzgerald, The Lone Ranger, many others. Maybe, we should try go backwards it would be good for us.

      “Boy, the way Glen Miller played. Songs that made the Hit Parade. Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days! Didn’t need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight Gee, our old LaSalle (a car) ran great. Those were the days! And you knew where you were then! Girls were girls and men were men. Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again. People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent. Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days! Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win. Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin (five dollar bill). Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song. I don’t know just what went wrong! Those Were the Days!”

    A good thing. I’m glad he’s doing it, but in the end everything is so ephemeral. Look back 100, 200, 400, 600, 100 years ago and look at how preciously few artifacts survive, and how little we know of everyone who has ever lived and died beyond a few generations ago. I’m not at all sure 300-400-500 yrs from now we will have done any better at preserving the bulk of today’s artifacts, literature, music etc.
