The Museum of Endangered Sounds

Posted on July 17, 2012 by Dana

OK, think fast. What does the Windows 95 start up music sound like? Or the AOL dial up connection static? Or a tape ejecting from a VCR? OR HOLY CRAP A SPEAK AND SPELL????

Relax. Even if you don’t readily remember these sounds, but feel you should, then there is this:
The Museum of Endangered Sounds, a site dedicated to preserving the sounds made by older technologies.

Oh wow. Even the sound of a rotary dial. I remember that. How could I not…in my house growing up we even had one of these. And I grew up in the 80s for crying out loud. The 1980s.
