A container that stored the orignal vinyls of the master recording of late Japanese Emperor Hirohito's World War II surrender speechThe master recording of Emperor Hirohito's speech announcing Japan's World War II surrender has been brought back to life in digital form ahead of the 70th anniversary of the end of the war. The Imperial Household Agency on Saturday released the original audio from the vinyl master records of Hirohito's radio broadcast on August 15, 1945. The four-and-a-half minute speech, which was digitally remastered by the agency, has been made available to the public on the agency's website: www.kunaicho.go.jp Background noise can still be heard in the new version but an agency official was quoted by the Yomiuri Shimbun as saying: "The voice pitch and intonation reflected the emperor's natural atmosphere and was close to his real voice." In the speech the emperor announced the nation's acceptance of the Potsdam Declaration, which demanded Japan's unconditional surrender, pledging "to pave the way for a grand peace for all the generations to come by enduring the unendurable and suffering what is unsufferable".
