“Tony Schwartz” (52:00 mp3):

Tony Schwartz, media pioneer, audio documentarian, and the most famous radio person you probably never heard of, died June 2008. We hear:

The Kitchen Sisters‘ Lost & Found Sound-portrait, “Tony Schwartz, 30,000 Recordings Later.”

And the Tony Schwartz-inspired verite documentary of the town he lived in and loved, “New York City: 24 Hours in Public Places” (thanks to Transom.org).

What’s great about “Hearing Voices” and Tony Schwartz is, these are sounds in my life, yet when I hear them on the radio–or my sound players or computer, I pay more attention to them, and enjoy them or enjoy them more. Of course, I’m a poet and pay attention anyhow to a lot of things to no or little practical use, but hey, life is not practical.
