At <http://www.phys.uu.nl/~gdevries/recording/>, where I had originally
posted the announcement of the "discovery" and a "scan" of the newspaper,
I have added, last Saturday, the mp3 and a complete newspaper scan. The
individual files can be found at
http://www.phys.uu.nl/~gdevries/recording/recording.mp3 (488 kB)
http://www.phys.uu.nl/~gdevries/recording/newspapercomplete.jpg (314 kB)

You'll notice that I faked both the recording (with CoolEdit) and the
newspaper scan (PaintShop).

In fairness, the credit for spotting the date goes to Jean-Michel.
