About Gordon Skene

What Is Past Daily And Why Should You Care.

Past Daily is an extension of my Archive. It is a project I work on every day, 12-14 hours each day. Why? Because I am committed to bringing history to as many people as possible.

Over the years, my archive has grown to some 150,000 reels of original tape and over 30,000 transcription discs (the method of recording in the 1930s and 1940s), and a warehouse fairly overflowing with history.
I began thinking; "why do I have all this stuff if I can't share it?"  I started Past Daily in 2012, and committed myself to putting my entire collection online and make it available to anyone who wants it.
This is a daily job for me - it takes from 12-14 hours every day, seven days a week, to research, digitize and write each post 3-5 times a day. But that's my commitment: that is what I have pledged to my audience to do.  
I have a lot to offer and a lot I want to accomplish. And with your help I can keep doing that.

$367.16 of $2,500 per month
My goal is $2500 a month, which will take care of space rental, vintage equipment upkeep and the ongoing digitization of over 150,000 original reels of tape and some 30,000 transcription discs of recorded history going from 1890 to the present. At present, I am posting a minimum of 2-3 posts per day based solely on materials from my Archive.
