Sound of the Hound: Series 1 Sampler

We have pulled together a sampler of some of the best bits from Series 1 of our Sound Of The Hound podcast about Fred Gaisberg and the very early days of the record business, presented by long time music exec Dave Holley & author and journalist James Hall.

In this sampler: Dave thinks signing & recording Caruso gave birth to the modern record industry. James describes how to make a castrato (not for the squeamish) and they tell the tale of how Fred and his sidekick Sinkler Darby had a misadventure with acid in a Polish hotel room.

Series 2 is coming soon.

  1. It’s not a bad idea to check before publishing a correction. There is not, was not and never has been a Gramophone & Typewriter Company. Look at some record labels. It was a limited partnership and was named The Gramophone & Typewriter Limited.
