TV Without Pictures on ďLost & Found Sound"

November 19, 1999 - 93.9 AM New York
Duration: 0:30:10



The Lost Sound of Televisionís Early Days:
Phil Gries and his peerless archive, Archival Television Audio, Inc. - www.atvaudio.com is profiled.   This segment, ďThe Lost Sound of Televisionís Early Days,Ē is introduced by NPRís Robert Siegel and Linda Wertheimer.

Phil Gries, growing up in Brooklyn in the 1950ís, and 60ís, audio taped thousands of hours off his family TV. Gries wired his reel to reel audio tape recorder to the back of his 1949 16Ē Andrea television set. He captured kidís shows, variety shows, news broadcasts, talk shows, and sports. His private daily mission in those days, long before video recorders, was to preserve, as best he could, everything he could.

It turns out that thousands of his air checks represent the only known surviving TV broadcasts in existence, since most of the live and video-taped television broadcasts of the 1950ís, 1960ís and early 1970ís were erased, destroyed, or never recorded.
