"Letters to Home" -- Recovered...
During WWII many soldiers recorded "letters to home" on small recordable discs, created at vending machines like this
. At Transfer
Media, we are honored to have been sought out to transfer some of these to Compact Disc. It has been a challenge, as some have such
major groove damage that the "crackle" is often louder than the voice message. However, the joy we've seen when a customer hears the
recovered story-- sometimes for the first time-- has made the effort rewarding indeed.
