06 Jun Sounds that your kids have probably never heard! Part 3 of 3.
It’s hard to believe that some sounds can become extinct, but did you know that there are a variety of sounds that your children or grandchildren will never hear? This week we will provide a list of 11 sounds that your children may only hear in “old” movies.
9) Cash Registers
Clumsy push buttons made lots of sounds, but checking a sale out was easy!
Watch here to hear the clunk for yourself!
10) Film Projectors
One of the jobs of the classroom A/V squad captain was to run the film projector on movie days. The rapid tick-tick-tick of the sprockets really was that loud and usually accompanied by shouts of “Turn it up!” and, of course, “Focus!”
Experience the sound here!
11) Broken Record
Remember when you’d beg mom over and over for something and she’d finally yell, “You sound like a broken record!”? She wasn’t referring to pops or hisses, but the repetitive effect that happened when the needle got stuck and played the same few notes over and over and over again.
How many of these sounds do you remember?
