“Wedding at Woolman Hill (7/29/06)” – recorded July 29, 2006 – 1:52:36 – 103.1 MB - StationUnlimited.com release #58 (August 14, 2006) – su-AFT-05_Wedding_at_WH-058
Recorded on Saturday, July 29, and Sunday, July 30, 2006. On this Audio Field Trip, my wife Denice and I travel from northern New Jersey to a wedding in western Massachusetts. Phil and Sarah, listeners to The Overnightscape, are getting married at a Quaker retreat called “Woolman Hill”. On this recording, you’ll hear about the long drive up, the creepy motel, arrival at the wedding, the wedding ceremony, walking through a cornfield the next day, visits to the Yankee Candle Flagship Store and the Hampshire Mall, and much more.
I recorded this Audio Field Trip on my Edirol R-1 digital recorder. Unfortunately, the Compact Flash card had gone faulty but I didn’t know about it. The total recording consists of 75 segments, totalling almost 2.5 hours. Unfortunately, 11 of the files were corrupt – so about 36 minutes of recordings were lost, all interspersed throughout. The lost segments include some commentary about the wedding, the night drive back to the motel, and an interview with Phil and Sarah.
This release consists of the raw unedited audio (minus the corrupt segments). It is a long, rambling piece of audio, and the “narrative” suffers a bit from the loss of some of the segments. But there is a lot of interesting and very varied stuff in this audio. Hopefully I’ll do an edited version at some point that will be an easier listen.
