Harvard has recently published a tape from a 1959 lecture that Austin held in Sweden. Everyone acquainted with speech act theory will not be surprised by anything he says. But it is nice to listen to this significant figure of ordinary language philosophy that all interpretative sociologists should study (but often don't). I first read Austin at the News School where we studied his "Plea for Excuses" where the term "Ethnographic Fieldwork in Philosophy" first appears. If I ever find the time and interest to do so, I would like to look into Austin's potential significance for sociology. For the time being, I am quite happy to enjoy listening to him in person for the first time. And yes, he is exactly as posh as you would expect.
