Publisher's Summary

Lost & Found Sound and Beyond is the second anthology of greatest hits from the Peabody Award-winning Lost & Found Sound radio series, heard over the last five years on NPR's All Things Considered. A collection of eccentric, endangered, and undiscovered sounds and oral traditions, this special two-hour recording provides a glimpse of the aural legacy of our country.

This gathering of unique stories is the product of a sprawling nationwide collaboration of independent radio producers, artists, musicians, archivists, writers, NPR, public radio stations, and listeners. Lost & Found Sound was produced by two-time Peabody Award-winning producers, The Kitchen Sisters (Nikki Silva and Davia Nelson) with Jay Allison, and hosted by film legend Francis Ford Coppola.

A sound hound himself, Coppola weaves these 12 richly-layered radio documentaries together with his own stories, reminiscences, and home recordings, including his 1977 "interview" with 5-year-old daughter Sofia Coppola about what she wants to be when she grows up. The stories include a surprising tale of Liberace and The Trinidad Tripoli Steelband, the saga of Sun Studios producer Sam Phillips, and narratives from Mohawk Indian ironworkers at the Twin Towers and Vietnamese manicurists in America.

    "AudioFile Magazine Review"

    We are pleased to let you know that Lost and Found Sound and Beyond received the 2005 AudioFile Earphones Award.

    The following review can be found in the February/March 2005 issue of AudioFile.

    "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.
