Iowa Public Radio’s historic audio project is the most accessible collection of Iowa voice and sound recordings that we know of. Since we launched Iowa Archives in 2007 we have broadcast hundreds of sound clips, including some that go back to the 19th century. We have discovered these sound treasures in libraries, museums, broadcast archives, on the Internet, and in private collections.If you have unique old recordings or an idea you’d like to suggest, send an email to Iowa Archives producer Rick Fredericksen.
