Speck Redd http://iowapublicradio.org en Wire Recordings http://iowapublicradio.org/post/wire-recordings <p>Wire recorders were the hi-tech machines used to capture voice and sound recordings during, and immediately after, World War II. Listen to legendary Iowa jazz pianist Speck Redd on wire, as well as a field report from Germany with the sound of artillery in the background. Jazz recordings came from collector Don Moon and Herb Plambeck's war report is from the Gold Star Museum at Camp Dodge. Sounds from 1954 and 1945 recorded in Des Moines and Nuremburg, Germany.</p> Thu, 08 May 2008 04:00:00 +0000 Rick Fredericksen 13274 at http://iowapublicradio.org Wire Recordings
