Rare McLuhan Audio

I rescued from cassette this talk that Marshall McLuhan gave at Johns Hopkins University in the mid 1970s. I have not found an audio file of this talk anywhere online. So far as I know it's an original contribution to the archive of McLuhan audio. Enjoy (audio starts at about 00:04).

This blog includes many posts that explicate and apply McLuhan's insights.

(note added 7/17/2010) :  I've had trouble getting audio players to work right on this page.  If you can recommend a reliable player to embed here, please let me know:   heresiarch[at]starlarvae.org .

  3. Thank goodness. I was getting tired of repeating the Speaking Freely with Edwin Newman interview over and over again. Very cool SL.

  4. McLuhan mentions the TV series ROOTS in the recording so my guess is this is from 1977 or later ...
