After a fascinating appearance on our Stratocaster 65th Anniversary Special, author Ian S. Port returns to discuss his book "The Birth of Loud" in depth. It is a brilliant read!

“A hot-rod joy ride through mid-20th-century American history. With appropriately flashy prose, [Port] dismantles some misconceptions and credits some nearly forgotten but key figures. He also summons, exuberantly and perceptively, the look, sound, and sometimes smell of pivotal scenes and songs. The Birth of Loud rightfully celebrates an earlier time, when wood, steel, copper wire, microphones and loudspeakers could redefine reality. Tracing material choices that echoed through generations, the book captures the quirks of human inventiveness and the power of sound.”

John Pareles, New York Times Book Review.
