dialect samples on cassette

Does anybody know of an audio tape series which gives examples of different
dialects of English? What I have found is intended for actors to develop THE
southern accent, THE New York accent, etc, rather than real samples from
real speakers. We would like to expose our students to dialects they might
otherwise never hear authentically used, such as Appalachian speech or
different Southern dialects. I doubt anything is available in one handy
dandy series, but if it's out there I'd love to know about it.

Thanks for your suggestions,
