Past Daily Fall Fundraiser – Communique #14
Day #15 – We’re at the mid point, and still a long way to go before getting anywhere near our goal for this Fundraiser. Another week has gone quickly by and another weekend is rapidly approaching. Don’t know about you, but time is speeding up. I thought as you got older it got slower. But no. Maybe it’s because there’s so much going on, so much more we’re aware of than we were say, 20 years ago. Everybody wants your attention – and they who are loudest wins. Which doesn’t bode terribly well for sites like Past Daily, who go quietly along, offering history and interviews, music and culture – doing it every day and offering a place of refuge from the insanity. And we’d like to keep it that way. We’d also like to be here a long time. Sometimes that gets a little shaky. It costs a lot to keep this site going – the time and expense of restoring and digitizing all the sounds you hear; all the historic newscasts, interviews and documentaries. Not all this stuff is in great shape when we first get it – it takes time to clean up and restore. The thing about old recordings is, they sometimes age badly, but they’re too important to throw away – and often it takes days to make the unlistenable listenable again.
