A New Take on that Old-Timey Sound

Email a Friend

Inspired by the field recordings of Alan Lomax, The 78 Project is on a mission to record today’s musicians with yesterday’s technology. With just a microphone, an authentic 1930′s PRESTO direct-to-disc recorder, and a blank lacquer disc, musicians are given the opportunity to make a recording anywhere they choose. Two staff members, Lavinia Wright and Alex Steyermark, join us to explain and they’ll record our guest, Justin Townes Earle, live on the air.
