The Dial, May 1920 by Various ( - ).

This project is complete! All audio files are available on our catalog page:
https://librivox.org/the-dial-may-1920-by-various/

An example of one of the leading literary magazines of the early 20th Century. Poetry by e.e. cummings and Louise Bryant (aka Mrs. John Reed, of 'Reds' fame), a short story by Sherwood Anderson, a memoir of the late poet James Flecker, theater and book reviews by Gilbert Seldes, and other critical works. (summary by Matt Pierard)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=chi.20660528;view=1up;seq=9
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I did what I could with the bg noise but it's not that much of a problem to me; removing the noise makes the sound tinny, for one thing. I'm more concerned with missed words or stumbles. I've also uploaded three more files. Thanks.

Good job! :thumbs:

1-the noise was removed, and I did not hear a tinny sound.
2-part of my job, is to bring to your attention above normal background noise.
3-missed words would only be caught, by me, if this project were "Word Perfect" (this is standard).
