Hi:

Here's is the page about the St. Louis foil at the miSci, Schenectady NY:
http://websnap08.lbl.gov/Tinfoil.html
it includes full-resolution WAV downloads of both raw transfer and processed audio.

I asked Chris Hunter at miSci if he's got a page up yet documenting his research into the event and 
speaker(s) which was recorded on the foil. I'll post when he gets back to me.
