Lost Edison Recordings

A recent newspaper article from the Albany Times Union details the discovery of film canisters containing recordings from a “pallophotophone” which was used for radio broadcasts in the 1920s.

The 20 hours of recordings were brought to life with the help of some engineers who built a machine to digitize the recordings. This recording contains the voice of Edison on stage with Hoover and Ford.
