Whilst we were talking for the podcast, Dan told me about a recent BBC Radio 3 documentary he had been a part of that focused on a tape recorder he had recently purchased. The machine came with a box of tapes, made in the 1950's and 60's which seemed to be of a group of friends in London. Alan Dein, the documentary's producer set about tracking down the machine's previous owner to talk about the recordings.
It's a story about found recordings, the intrigue that makes them so compelling and how a seemingly disconnected series of recordings can prove to be a document of an interesting story.
