From the AAPB:
KUT 90.5, Austin’s NPR Station, at The University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with the American Archive of Public Broadcasting, has received a generous grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources’ Recordings at Risk grant program to digitize the nationally syndicated radio series In Black America, a topical weekly program hosted by John L. Hanson and produced at KUT Radio. The program hosts prominent guests from the black community and explores all facets of the African American experience.
The collection is currently stored on 710 quarter-inch audio reels, which are deteriorating and obsolete. Through this project, KUT will digitize the collection and add to its searchable archival repository, and also gift copies to the American Archive of Public Broadcasting. Further, digitized assets will be available for research at the Briscoe Center for American History in Austin.
