Documentary on Marr Sound Archives airs today on KCPT

We always knew there was a huge collection of music down in the UMKC library basement, but 297,000 recordings? Dang.

Tune in to Channel 19 KCPT today at exactly 7:50 p.m. for a six-minute documentary about what’s been going on at the Marr Sound Archives all these years. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Jordan Kerfeld, and featuring KCUR Fish Fry host, author and archives specialist Chuck Haddix, Momentum & Marr “chronicles the history and dramatic growth of a sound library in Kansas City, which has maintained the American experience in sound by collecting and preserving over 297,00 sound recordings in just over 20 years.”
