Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Francis Ford Coppola

Contemporary Culture • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2004

It’s no wonder this series won the coveted Peabody Award. It’s a pastiche of intensely human stories captured in intimate, lovingly recorded sound. Original recordings include sounds from Sam Phillips’ Sun Records (a workaholic renegade recording “cotton-patch” music against all conventional wisdom), Okies living and singing in temporary government housing during the Depression, struggling Vietnamese immigrants finding their place in America as pop-music-loving nail technicians, brilliantly personal early black recordings from the Deep South, and much more. Dated original recordings are woven over close-to-the-mike interviews, each element saturated with color and humanity. Coppola integrates his own home recordings to add an honesty and transparency to this not-to-be-missed audio treat. D.J.B.
