PennSound’s archive project to bring 100 years of poetry to audio listeners
NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller is joined by Chris Mustazza, the Associate Director from The University of Pennsylvania’s PennSound, to gives us some insight into their online audio archive project.
Poetry is among the written forms that best jumps off the page when recited allowed. The online audio archive project at the University of Pennsylvania is devoted to collecting recordings previously unavailable to the general public. Works from Robert Frost, Gertrude Stein, and James Weldon Johnson among others have all been made available.
NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller is joined by Chris Mustazza, the Associate Director from PennSound, to gives us more insight about the project. The PennSound archive has existed since 2005 and contains material from as early as 1913 and as new as this month. According to Mr. Mustazza this archive “is for students, teachers, and other lovers of literature.”
