Tolkien Recordings

I find the following information regarding recordings of Tolkien reading from his works (links to text or videos on the internet):

Tolkien and tape recorders

Stanley's Recollections of Tolkien - note the issues with Tolkien's pronunciation challenges relating to his false teeth

Radio program regarding the 1952 Tolkien recordings - interesting that these recordings were not rehearsed, and made before The Lord of the Rings was published. Sadly, the published version of these recordings did not include all of what was recorded.

I wonder how our course could benefit from studying these and other sources. I think that perhaps they are relevant to "Exploring The Lord of the Rings".
