Centuries of Sound on Cambridge 105 Radio – Episode 12 (1904)

July 1 – The third Modern Olympic Games opens in St. Louis, Missouri, United States as part of the World's Fair

Time: 8pm BST, Saturday 20th July 2019

Place: Cambridge 105fm

James Errington takes you on another journey back into the forgotten history of recorded sound, this time joined by Liam Higgins, playing cylinders and shellac all from the year 1904. Aside from the usual brass band, banjo and proto-ragtime and barbershop music, you can listen to the last castrato, find out what a ‘gamp’ is and hear a lengthy excoriation of the worst Olympic Games of all time.

Listen to the show on 105fm in Cambridge, on DAB digital nationwide, on the Cambridge 105 website here, or on any good radio apps. Or if you missed it, which you probably did, you could just stream it here:
