Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, Reeves has worked on film collections at the National Archives, Library of Congress, and the Archives of Appalachia.

Reeves has worked on preserving silent films made during Hollywood’s first golden era in the 1920s, regional home movies, military and government film, educational and industrial film, television newsfilm, lost regional television shows, and all types of recorded audio media.

    Hello Bradley, Just wanted to send a Big Thank You for having Ross Southerland on your show Oct. 2 and again tonight on the 9th…he is
    a fantastic singer. Many of my friends and family like me know his
    music almost by heart. Hope you will have him back again in the very
    near future. Thank you for your time..
