Gladys and Walter recordings

The first two files come from cassette recordings made in Plattsmouth in 1992 or 1993.

The sound quality is a lot better on the file number 3. It seems to be a ‘recorded letter’ to Ralph made in 1972, when Anna was pregnant with Chrissie (because there is a point on the tape in which they mention having heard a recording of me and they say they are excited about the new baby on the way.) Instead of sending a letter, Gladys and Walter took turns recording events of the day, I suppose until the tape was filled up, and then they sent the tape in the mail.
