Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!

The Community Audio Recording Project continues to roll along to great response. Call the project at 413.320.4141 and lend your voice and story to your community's history; The calls will be collected and archived at the Hampshire Room for Local History and Special Collections in Forbes Library.

  • Early last week, Northamptonist visited with Chris Bellmonte of local radio station WRSI and recorded a segment about C.A.R.P. for Chris' Profiles from the Riverlution segment. In the studio, we talked about the project, listened to calls, called the number, and generally just had a good time. Chris really appreciated the value and potential project, and expressed a sincere enthusiasm for it. He recorded and edited the material, and did an outstanding job at that, which has been playing it on WRSI 93.9 The River this week. You can find mp3 files from that segment at his site, which you should visit and poke around in, as he has some great audio gathered from the community, such as his interview with local personality 'Al Do You Have A Quarter'. If you're not so interested in hearing more audio similar to what Monte did with me, you can listen to the audio Chris recorded with me, below.

  • The Neighbors Project, an innovative 501(c)3 non-profit based out of Chicago whose mission is to "inspire and train members of the new urban generation to connect with their neighbors through projects that improve the neighborhood for everyone" was introduced to the project by way of an email from me, as Northamptonist really enjoys the work they do, and their blog. Kit Hodge, CEO of Neighbors Project, got back to me and asked if I would like to do a profile of me for their Meet Your Neighbors series, which is a great series of posts on people doing neighborly projects in their neighborhood, so I was happy to do so. You can read that here.

  • Lastly, here are two new recordings made to C.A.R.P. to share, including the one Chris made in the studio, both which have been uploaded and geotagged with the rest on the map of Northampton online.
