Notice: I have an unfamiliar language on my tape recorder that I'm trying to identify. Who can I send this to so I can get this language identified? Does anyone know if I can email the recording file online to someone who can identify it? I live in the Buffalo, NY area. If you have any info I would appreciated it.
Thank you for all your time,
Eric Youngman
