Listen to the ghosts of Christmas past: World’s oldest home audio recordings made on Christmas Day more than a century ago discovered in a grandfather’s attic

The world’s oldest home audio recordings to be made on Christmas Day more than a century ago have been discovered by a grandfather — in his attic.

David Brown, 71, was given a phonograph and wax cylinders containing audio recordings by his mum when she died, but had no idea what was on them, as the recording machine was broken.

He stashed the recordings in his loft and only re-discovered them later during a clear-out. He donated them to the Museum of London four years ago, where experts made the remarkable discovery. for more click here
