Miraculously, the flat, round metal can contained an extremely fragile, reel-to-reel tape labeled, 'Iwo Jima Flag Raising - Joe Rosenthal interviewed by John Faber on 3-24-57 in Washington, DC.' You can imagine my excitement when my Audio Production Manager came back to me with a digitally remastered CD of the original recording that nobody had heard since the day it was recorded nearly half a century ago.
The Battle of Iwo Jima raged for 36 days, yet Joe Rosenthal managed to capture it perfectly in a single moment of accidental magic. The Wizard's curiosity about that magical moment led to him finding a magical time capsule on his desktop. And because you share that same curiosity, he is delighted to share the "accidental magic" with you.
