Subject: "Chicago's Hidden Indie Rock Archive" Hello everyone, I recently read this article about Aadam Jacobs, who documented Chicago's indie rock scene for three decades. Link: https://interactive.wbez.org/curiouscity/taping-guy/ It's a fascinating read, but Jacobs's analogue collection is at risk of disappearing. Posting the story here in the hope of catching a digital archivist's interest. From the article: "At this point, Jacobs says he's had trouble finding the right institution that can digitize, catalog and preserve the recordings, some of which are on old, disintegrating cassette tapes... He wants it to be the right place... He has something that nobody else has, Miller Tweedy says. I think about it and wonder what's going to happen to it. And, yeah, it could be disintegrating, so I hope he finds a way to get it all further archived so that it stays forever. It's really priceless." Best, Sean --- Sean A.
