Featured shows

Another week, another Blast From The Past!

This time it's time for a dose of Theme Park, and an observant listener might notice that today's episode actually skips one show!
I actually couldn't find the previous one, so you'll get to hear this one instead :)

It's an indie pop/rock themed show, with that theme yet again being voted forth by the listeners.

As you have probably read by now, the station is shutting down following the 10th birthday, so this will be the last episode of Theme Park here on Blast From The Past.

Undusting the oldest records:

Probably my favourite Dusty Road show to ever air on Bait Radio. Perhaps not the most exciting or offering the best music, but definitely the craziest and the dustiest.

The show opened with a couple of oldies tracks, announcing we're going pretty far back. And we did, back to 19th century where the sound recording first began and listened to some of the oldest sound recordings.

The phonograph, device used for recording and playing recorded sound, was invented by Thomas Edison in 1877. He first used a tin foil wrapped around a cylinder, which was impractical for a wider usage. Edison didn't really improve much on his invention, rather focusing on his new invention, the light bulb. But others did. So in the beginning, the recording material became wax cylinders. A thin layer of wax applied around a cylinder. Of course that meant the recordings were very fragile.

Recently they've begun to reconstruct these first recordings, digitally. As I understood, they're taking detailed pictures of the cylinders from which they reconstruct the sound itself. Not by actually playing the records (which could further damage them, as well). Of course the quality is far from good, but considering the obstacles, the results are amazing. One of the problems is they often don't know the speed at which a recording was recorded (that is, how fast the cylinder was rotating), there were no standards back then, and even more, the speed could alter during the recording if even by a small margin. All these factors offset the outcome. For example, there was a recording they long thought it was sung by a female or a child, only to later realize they assumed twice the speed. It was a male voice.

Mind you, this was all before the microphone as we now know it became widespread. That happened in 1920s. They were using a recording horn to record the sound on the cylinder. The oldest known recording (1857) even predates the phonograph! Phonoautogram was used instead. Later the technology evolved, at least materials did. A big breakthrough in terms of quality of sound as well as its durability were the celluloid cylinders, which hit the scene at about the turn of the century. They were that much better that one recording company named itself Indestructible Records, implying the cylinders' durability.

But to relax in between all these great oldest dusty recordings, we listened to some of the latest country music recordings.

The old recordings were made available to the public by University of California, Santa Barbara Library and First Sounds. If you missed the show, I highly suggest you take a look around yourself and have a listen. Terrific stuff, a real look back to life 120 years ago.
