Lost & Found Sound and Beyond is the second anthology of greatest hits from the Peabody Award-winning Lost & Found Sound radio series, heard over the last five years on NPR's All Things Considered. A collection of eccentric, endangered, and undiscovered sounds and oral traditions, this special two-hour recording provides a glimpse of the aural legacy of our country.
This gathering of unique stories is the product of a sprawling nationwide collaboration of independent radio producers, artists, musicians, archivists, writers, NPR, public radio stations, and listeners. Lost & Found Sound was produced by two-time Peabody Award-winning producers, The Kitchen Sisters (Nikki Silva and Davia Nelson) with Jay Allison, and hosted by film legend Francis Ford Coppola.
A sound hound himself, Coppola weaves these 12 richly-layered radio documentaries together with his own stories, reminiscences, and home recordings, including his 1977 interview with 5-year-old daughter Sofia Coppola about what she wants to be when she grows up. The stories include a surprising tale of Liberace and The Trinidad Tripoli Steelband, the saga of Sun Studios producer Sam Phillips, and narratives from Mohawk Indian ironworkers at the Twin Towers and Vietnamese manicurists in America.
