    One of my favourite topics to read about is old media I feel so lucky to have found a copy of this book first published in 1995 that investigates the role of the tape recorder in oral history interviews particularly for gathering folkloric materials The first section reviews the tape recorder and its role in conducting an oral history interview While such a chapter may seem redundant actually reviewing and considering how this old media platform was used in interviewing offers a profound moment of both reflection and context for those of us who record interviews digitally This chapter is also a fine history of the tape recorder rather than merely the tape playerThe usefulness of the book increases through the discussion of the interview process Ives presents the challenges and problems that may emerge through interviewing and offers solutions to them There is also a strong section on transcribing and preservation of the interviewsThis is an important book in oral historiography It reminds us of our analogue heritage and the lessons we must continue to learn and apply in a digital environment Ives is also a magnificent writer so the tone and engagement with the reader is appropriate and considered
