Sound Restoration

Our Quest for Sound phone line brings calls from listeners not only wanting to contribute their treasured sound to the Lost and Found Sound series for millions to hear, but who also want simply to HEAR the sound for themselves.

Often, people's precious moments are stored on inaccessible material such as cardboard, aluminum, wire, 78 rpm records and even 33 1/3 rpm records. In some cases the material is so old that its condition has deteriorated. So we called in sound restorer Steve Smolian of Frederick, MD to help bring listeners' special moments back to life.
