It was announced on Friday that next week's installment (March 12) of
"Lost and Found Sound," a year-long exploration of a century's worth of
audio archives on National Public Radio's *All Things Considered*, will
be about New York City dialects, using Wm. Labov's 40 years of tape

The program usually airs between 4:30 and 5:00 EST (repeated 6:30-7:00);
for listeners not within range of a public radio station, many of the
affiliates offer live sound streaming from their websites. You can get a
list of them at < >; I don't suppose there's any reason
this wouldn't work outside the US.
