[ARSCLIST] Looking for Recordings of Agricultural Weather Reports
I'm currently curating an exhibit focused on Orange County [California]
agriculture and pre-WWII Japanese American farmers. I'm trying to
locate some recordings of "frost" or weather reports that were typically
broadcast for agricultural areas (for example: suggesting that smudge
pots be lit in the evenings to keep citrus warm throughout the night).
I'm afraid they were probably rather ephemeral in nature so I don't know
if any still exist. If we had a model (another geographical area and/or
text) perhaps, we could recreate an audio recording ourselves.
Thanks in advance. Please feel free to contact me off list.
