Cuban-American Radionovelas in the Louis J. Boeri and Minin Bujones Collection

160 reel-to-reel audio tapes selected from the Louis J. Boeri and Minín Bujones Collection of Cuban Radionovelas housed at the Latin American Library at Tulane University will be converted from analog to digital format.  They will then be hosted on Tulane's Digital Library. These materials are among the more than 9,100 masters of recordings of radio programs produced and broadcasted by America’s Production Inc. out of Miami during the 1960s. They constitute a unique research resource that is currently trapped on aging, unstable audio tapes with moderate to severe condition issues and inaccessible due to a lack of functioning playback equipment.
