Eric Sloane’s Voice!

A few years ago, I was asked to see what I could glean from a very old recording disc which had deteriorated significantly.  The disc was part of a group that covered a full interview of Eric Sloane on a 1955 episode of the Mary Margaret McBride Show.

Unfortunately, all of the recording discs from the show were damaged and could not be played so that sound could be pulled from them and recorded….except one that looked like it might be possible to play if one could find the technology to do so.  After a bit of searching, I was able to find a local source that could play the disc and make a recording of it – here was the voice of Eric Sloane, if a bit scratchy, from more than sixty years past.  I could not believe our good fortune to have captured even just a few minutes of Eric Sloane speaking.  It is the only recording of Eric’s voice with which I am familiar.  Enjoy this, it is truly a unique opportunity:
