On July 1, 2002, a mysterious time capsule that had been launched from the past landed at Wizard Academy. I came to find out it had been launched on March 24, 1957, by John Faber, the National Press Photographers archivist, and Joe Rosenthal, the photographer who took the world's most celebrated photograph.
Miraculously, the flat, round metal can contained an extremely fragile, reel-to-reel tape labeled, 'Iwo Jima Flag Raising - Joe Rosenthal interviewed by John Faber on 3-24-57 in Washington, DC.' You can imagine my excitement when my Audio Production Manager came back to me with a digitally remastered CD of the original recording that nobody had heard since the day it was recorded nearly half a century ago.
The Battle of Iwo Jima raged for 36 days, yet Joe Rosenthal managed to capture it perfectly in a single moment of accidental magic. The Wizard's curiosity about that magical moment led to him finding a magical time capsule on his desktop. And because you share that same curiosity, he is delighted to share the accidental magic with you. Download and start listening now!
