A podcast gets archived by the British Library
October 24, 2019 · 2.2 minutes to read
The British Library’s Sound Archive is to permanently archive the Radio Moments Conversations podcast, “so that future generations may enjoy the character and colour of the analogue age”. The podcast contains interviews with nearly a hundred well-known radio professionals, mainly from the UK: we would recommend US radio consultant Valerie Geller, Australian broadcasters Bryan Hayes and Jono Coleman, and the much missed John Myers. The British Library Sound Archive contains other radio and podcast material.
