Inspector Sands Sound Recording

The enigmatic Inspector Sands is sometimes heard on the public transport system in the UK, but often not for long enough to record. This morning there was a good opportunity to fire up my recorder and capture over a minute of this announcement.

The announcement can be made for a number of reasons, and is used to alert transport staff to an incident without causing panic in what are usually, crowded and congested areas – the last place you need a stampede.

    I’m also interested in field recordings, especially binaural. This is very interesting and I’ve learnt something new.
