The British Library have launched their spoken word and music sound archive on line. They tell us that they are putting “thousands of rare, unpublished and out-of-print recordings” on line for UK academic and researchers.
The archive includes fine art, photography and design interviews in addition to ICA talks from luminaries including Salman Rushie, John Berger, and Germain Greer.
Lost in CCI’s favourite, of course, remains jazz singer Beryl “Queen of the Wasboard” Bryden.
