Devuélveme la voz is a project of the University of Alicante for the reconstruction of our history through mainly radio sound material, centered in the years of the Franco regime and the democratic transition. Basically it aims to integrate radio sound collections both from the exerior (which were generally heard clandestinely) and the interior of Spain. These sound sources have traditionally been a marginal source of historical study.
A sound archive and a thematic portal online has been created, with explanatory texts, images, videos and documents that contextualize the audios with reality. It is a multidisciplinary, open and flexible project, with the only limit of the availability of the sources and possibility of adding recordings of oral testimonies. All this using the resources of the University of Alicante, developing an experience and a technological acquis easily applicable to future projects of equal or similar nature.
The starting point began with the Ramírez/del Campo of "Radio París" fund, an important radio station of exile, donated to the University of Alicante by two of its most famous speakers and their heirs, and it has been completed with the recordings kept by the former director of the Iberian language broadcast of the ORTF, André Camp thanks to an agreement with the Bibliothèque de Documentation Internationale Contemporaine (sound collection André Camp). The deferred broadcast of the ORTF (Office de Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française) continued and the sound fund Radio Alcoy EAJ-12, thanks to an agreement with Radio Alcoy-Cadena SER, from whose sound library both collections come from. Finally, a small section of songs and texts submitted to radio censorship has been created on the lists of "Gramphonic Texts qualified as" non-radiable "by the Directorate General of Broadcasting and Television" existing in the General Administration and in the Radio Alcoy station file.
They are important recordings to achieve a more complete and reliable reconstruction of the past. We want to return the voice to those invaluable historical sources so that we can return our own history in return.
