Dear AV colleagues,
The Norwegian Institute of Recorded Sound (NIRS) follows up on the great feedback we got over the last few years for our musical Advent Calendar with more old, old... ooold recordings! After all, it has now become a tradition!
From the 1st of December and every day until Christmas Day, we will present a vintage recording, with its original historical noises for an authentic "good old times" feeling. In this year's edition of the calendar we introduce our new Music Librarian and what he has uncovered in our collections. We also mark 100 year celebration for the singer Gunnar Sandvold, who was instrumental in bringing the collection back to Norway.
Before that, so you can already enjoy music for Christmas as well. Read more about this year's theme on the main site of the calendar (see link below)
Do you wish to receive a daily reminder with the day's link(s)? - just answer this email with a yes please! (let me know which email you'd like to receive the daily's at!)
and/or you can also sign up as 'attending' on the Facebook event (and we'll use your facebook email).
(NB: if you have received daily's before, you will automatically receive this year's as well - no need to sign up again)
