Recording Equipment and Media

Reel to reel recording equipment and cassette recorders were used to record oral history interviews on analog media for the Southern Oral History Program from the 1970s through 1990s. Reel to reel tapes and audiocassettes provide the foundation for the SOHP collection.  Many of these recordings have been digitized, making them widely accessible on the web, along with a constantly growing number of current born-digital recordings.
