#383: 2012.07.15

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in scotland by mark 
vernon, and features location recordings by east midlands tape recording 
clubs made between 1959 and 1978. for more information see 
http://www.meagreresource.com. mark's notes on the show:

A selection of vintage amateur field recordings from three East Midlands 
tape clubs: The Derby Tape Recording Club, The Leicester Tape Recording 
Club and The Nottingham Co-operative Tape Recording Club.

Many of these recordings were made in the days when recording on 
location entailed lugging a heavy and cumbersome full-size reel to reel 
recorder out and about with you. Outdoor recordings were often 
impractical but sometimes being part of a club – pooling resources and 
sharing knowledge, made things a little bit easier. The appearance of 
affordable portable battery recorders in the early 60’s granted tape 
enthusiasts unprecedented freedom as to what and where they could record 
– a freedom which most tape club members exploited to the full. Some of 
these recordings were made on organised outings as part of the tape 
club’s programme of activities; others were made independently by 
individual members. This selection represents just a fraction of the 
recordings contained within the archives. The variety and imagination 
displayed here is a testament to the pioneering spirit of a dedicated 
group of amateurs; our forebears in the pursuit of recorded sound.

Thanks to all former tape club members, in particular; Bill and Marjory 
Howard, Ernie Flecknoe, Brian Hayhoe, John & Lorna Buckler, John Moule, 
Bruce Goodwin, Dennis Blackmore and Patrick Everest.
