Larkin tapes discovered

The story's in the Guardian: "The tapes date to the early 1980s, when Larkin had lived in Hull for about 30 years. Born in Coventry, he retained an accentless 'received pronunciation' voice, with no trace of the broad Yorkshire vowels."

There really is something uncanny about the fact that we can listen to the voices of the dead.
