Audiovisual [series]:

The Audiovisual series (1 linear foot) is made up of four subseries: Sound Recordings, Videotapes, Photographs and Slides.

 
Sound Recordings [subseries]:

The Sound Recordings subseries consists of audio cassettes. Most of these tapes are recordings of interviews with Soundings staff members, volunteers, and clients, which aired on local radio programs. In addition, there are promotional radio spots (both initial takes and the final cuts) created by Soundings, also for local broadcast. Musical audio recordings consist of a recording of a former client of Soundings, Bessie Leggett Phelan, singing the Soundings theme song, "Soundings," which she also composed, as well as the "Ode to Gerry," sung by some of the staff on the occasion of Soundings' tenth anniversary. There is also an audio 'letter' to Gerry Brown from the rest of the Soundings staff.

Photographs [subseries]:

The Photographs sub-subseries, arranged chronologically, consists of an assortment of photographs taken throughout the decades of Soundings' existence. These photographs cover many occasions and situations, such as fundraising benefits, participant graduation ceremonies, and staff portraits, as well as other events and topically-themed photos for the newsletter. Many of these photographs are not well-documented as to subject matter or date. Included in the Photographs sub-subseries are photographs and memorabilia (programs and announcements) from the "Target Photo Album," which was disassembled for preservation reasons.
