Sounds of the 70s

A radio composition by Jonny Trunk created entirely from BBC Sound Effects recorded between 1970 and 1979.

Record collector and DJ Jonny Trunk creates a new work made up entirely of BBC Sound Effects records from the 1970s. An unlikely sonic adventure into the lost world of Geiger counters, Routemaster buses, typewriters, vintage bells and windscreen wipers, all extracted from the original seven-inch vinyl pressings of recordings made between 1970 and 1979.
