Audio Digitizing

This exercise is designed to familiarize you with digitizing sound for the web. There are a number of examples on .xroads of what we've done in the past:

For some time I've been collecting OTR (Old Time Radio) tapes and cds of radio programs from the 1930s. One of the most interesting of these is The March of Time, a weekly docu-drama of current events sponsored by the Hearst organization. These are interesting in and of themselves, and also as possible inclusions for the 1930s timeline.

I'm going to ask you to go to the Digital Media Center and convert audio tapes of about an hour's worth of these programs to streaming digital format. As usual, there will be a sign up list on my door.
