Brilliant Attack on Vinyl
I understand that some broadcast archives are being cleaned up rather drastically (either closed or chucked out) as the economy bites and current leaders don't see the purpose in keeping their heritage. On the other hand, I thought the BBC's idea to donate a collection of is Caribbean service recordings to the University of the West Indies was a good move to preserve material that had been made with public money. I rather like what artists have been doing with vinyl in Spain, though I guess archivists will find the video too painful to watch.
