"I talked to CVC Productions about transferring my wire recordings to a Cd and I told you how about 30 years ago my dad took them to the Nebraska Historical Society and a man working there had just started transferring some other wire recordings to cassette tape. I was just a straight transfer with no computer enhancement of any kind. When I first listened to it I was actual surprised that when the people stood next to the microphone the sound was very good. I had never heard a wire recording before and I was not expecting much on something 37 years old. It was recorded during a specially held church service on a Tuesday evening for my Grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary in 1949. the only problem was that with one stationary microphone, the people standing next to it the sound was very good but when someone stood up 8 or 9 rows back form the front of the church you could barely hear them. when I played for members of the family I always had to sit by my stereo with my hand on the volume control. when it came to those quite spots I would have to turn it almost all the way up. then when the next person started to speak next to the microphone, the pictures on my walls would actually start to rattle before I could get it turned down it time. The day I got your Cd's, I put them in my Cd player, turned it on and then sat there in AWE! I could not believe the quality of the Cd. If I had not heard the cassette tape before I would have had no idea that there had been a sound problem with the recording. The sound was of the same level and quality all the way through the Cd. I could not have been happier. Thank you so much for saving this tiny bit of family history for my family. Sincerely, Gerald (Gary) Eberspacher"
