NPR's Lost & Found Sound brought together radio producers, artists, historians, archivists, and the public broadcasting community came together to collect and preserve audio traces of the World Trade Center, its neighborhood and the events of 9/11.

What they came up with is sonicmemorial.org. [more inside]

This is a nice dovetail to the other 9/11 threads of the last 24 hours. It is full of stories and memories from the last 40 years and compliments the earlier thread by djacobs. I particularly like the Sonic Browser where you move your cursor over an audio line to hear a story.

NOTE:I would have put more links in but it is all javascripted and not behaving and I am not that smart at web stuff. Go to the main page and click on the obvious choices. Lots of Real Player stuff. For the Sonic Browser, you will need Flash 6 Player. But even on a dialup connection, it is tolerable.

Dang, sorry for the second comment in my own post, but George Mason University has a 9/11 digital archive as well.

Ok, that's it.

do they have the screaming jet engine sound and the fireman shouting 'holy fuck' from the street level video of the first tower strike? i've been looking all over for it. that, plus the last radio transmission from the challenger shuttle launch ("oh, shit!") are all i need for the full set. woohoo!

No, it does not include that. If that is what you crave, see if this show is coming to your town. You will be more than satisfied.

Thanks lampshade, but is anyone else getting a completely broken page? I tried viewing but everything was all messed up. Man, I hope it's not my browser.
