Got 90 seconds? Then you've got time for a trip through the history of recorded sound! Sound Beat highlights the holdings of the Belfer Audio Archive. The Belfer is part of the Syracuse University Library, and with more than half a million recordings, is one of the largest sound archives in the United States. Each SB episode focuses on one particular recording from the Archive, and provides a back story detailing its place in recording history. What kinds of recordings? Popular and classical music performances, film scores those from distinctly American musical forms like jazz, bebop, country, and bluegrass. Old favorites, rare gems, and some we guarantee you've never heard before, from Cab Calloway to the castrated stars of Italian opera, you'll hear it all on the Sound Beat! Hosted by Brett Barry.
