In this latest edition of WUKY's Award winning history series Saving Stories, Doug Boyd from the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History in the UK Libraries highlights the Chasing Sound Oral History Project; a collection of interviews conducted by Susan Schmidt Horning for her book "Chasing Sound: Technology, Culture, and the Art of Studio Recording from Edison to the LP (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2013; 2015)." Included are interviews with some of the most established and creative audio engineers and musicians of the 1950's, 60's, and 70's, many of whom detail how the Beatles changed nearly every aspect of studio recording.
