In this episode of From the Vault, Pacifica Radio Archives focuses on the Sound of Soul preservation project by featuring excerpts of Sounds That Change the World, a special national broadcast from November 2007. Hosted by Allee Willis and Brian DeShazor, with special guest Georgia Wise, we’ll listen to freshly preserved recordings that were adopted by Pacifica Radio Archives’ supporters at the February 2007 Sound of Soul Party, recordings that were in danger of being lost forever to tape disintegration. Featured this week are the voices of Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, Carmen McRae, Angela Davis, and James Baldwin, among others.
From the Vault is presented as part of the Pacifica Radio Archives Preservation and Access Project.
