ART ARFONS / GREEN
SALT FLATS AUDIO (CLIP 4)
November 7, 1965, Art Arfons and his crew
later in the
afternoon of the day Art set his 576 mph record. They're back in
Wendover now, in a room at the Western Motel, talking and revelling in
the record as Jack Olsen's tape machine continues to record. To help
with voices, Art is the one who says right at the beginning, "What's
your trouble?" and it's Ed Snyder who says, "What's the motel here?"
Then you can hear Art talking: "Oh, she was bawling..." he says,
talking about his wife June's reaction when he phoned her up. Ed
is speaking on the phone in the background at first, then joins the
love this audio. Jack Olsen, bless him, just leaves his tape recorder
on, letting it record whatever Art and the rest are saying. No one
seems to be aware that it's on, so what we're hearing is real life
going. We are the proverbial fly on the wall, listening in on Art and
his crew almost a half century ago.
