Ever wondered what happened to those records of your Grandmas that your mum told you to look after? Apparently Samuel Scott has, and that is just one of the many reasons he went in search of the great New Zealand music archive.

Sam talks to Sarah Johnston (Nga Taonga), Simon Grigg (Audio Culture), Michael Brown (National Library), Lee Prebble (The Surgery) about saving our sound.
