24th December

From the 1st – 24th December, we will reveal 24 seconds of sound from a warmer place here on the sound-diaries blog, taken from either Paul Whitty or Felicity Ford’s collections of holiday recordings.

Today’s sound is of a very old music box, originally created in Leipzig, and now belonging to Rose Fisher. It was recorded on a very hot day at the Woodcote Rally in Oxfordshire, by Felicity Ford. This sound also features in a radio show about the A4074 road in Oxfordshire, which was also recorded by Felicity Ford and which aired on BBC Oxford on Boxing Day, 2010.

Happy Christmas!
