from PRX: Lost and Found Sound And Beyond

October 11, 2006

I promise you that you will thank yourself for giving this two-hour program, hosted by Francis Coppola, a chance. This is a masterful production by the Kitchen Sisters that plays like poetry woven with sounds from and about things of the past looking into the future.

An excerpt from this exceptional two-part program description reads like this:

“A sound hound himself, Francis Ford Coppola weaves these twelve richly-layered radio documentaries together with his own stories, reminiscences and home recordings, including his 1977 “interview” with five-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.”
