An appearance by Don Fleming, archivist of the Alan Lomax collection at the Association for Cultural Equity, plus Emmylou Harris and Elvis Costello. It’s not often that sound archives, or archivists for that matter, get such high profile media attention. The ACE has just made 17,000+ recordings recordings by the Lomaxes available to stream from their Website. (Related materials from the ACE’s Global Jukebox were recently covered by the NYTimes here.)
