Centuries of Sound

Centuries of Sound:  is a fascinating website and podcast project that creates audio mixes for every year since the development of sound recording. Beginning with 1860, a mix is posted each month until they reach the present day. The scope is more or less everything, music of course, but also speech and other sounds, the only limit being that music and sounds used must be from that year. The series is up to 1936 on the website, with a leap to 2016 through 2019 for those of us who need something more contempoary. The project also offers a prize-winning podcast. Be prepared to get lost in the aural histories.
