The Bizgnus Podcast: Jason Burt

12 minutes

•  Lost for decades, music recorded as WW 2 ended is found by a Central Valley teacher

•  “This is the only recording of a frontline band unit made in the middle of WWII”

(Total Recorded Time is 13:28)

Few people have ever heard it.  Perhaps even the musicians who played the tunes never expected they would be heard 75 years later.

Music recorded by a long-forgotten Army Air Force band while the wounds of the just-ended war in the Pacific were still fresh, has been found in an attic in the Central Valley and is being re-issued in time for Veterans Day.

The story of this unique music begins with a single microphone sending the audio to a device that recorded it originally onto a spool of thin wire.

Clarksburg Middle School history teacher Jason Burt found the recordings in the dusty attic of his grandparent’s home.

Mr. Burt talks about his discovery and how it is being used to help today’s veterans’ organizations in this Bizgnus podcast:
