A serious blast from the past!

This is my first post of 2009 – hopefully it will not be the last!

I wrote back in October about a song my mother would have sung. The song was called “God Hath Not Promised” and I said in that post that she would have sung it as a duet with my Dad.

When we were going through my mothers possessions we came across many cassette tapes which contain a wealth of sentimental recordings. I have actually started to digitise these tapes so that I can publish them through a Podcast, making them available to other family members.

This example of Mam and Dad singing together is one of only a few which are preserved on analogue tape. The recording can be played back by clicking the link below! The quality is not very great – but it is never the less its an icon of an age which is now very much in the past since both my mother and father have passed away.

(you will need a suitable MP3 player application like Quicktime to listen to this)

I intend to publish more example of this sort of thing – here is the URL for the Podcast which can be used to subscribe to it using iTunes or a similar Podcast reader. http://homepage.mac.com/jimbuchan/Podcasts/JBpodcast.xml
