On December 4, 1877, the phonograph was invented. It was a ‘disruptive technology’ and it changed the way we all listened to music.
To show my age and stage in life, I still have hundreds (really) of 33-1/3 albums, a few 78s and a bunch of 45s. We have a juke box so that’s where at least half of the 45s live. We have a family section and then a section for my husband (country western), son (heavy metal), daughter (lollipop) and me (50s-60s and Christmas). Now if we could only get the thing to work after a tree went down on the power lines about 14 years ago and fried half of the juke box’s electronics.
My favorite ‘vinyl’ ? It would have to be a Campfire Album that I purchased at Knott’s Berry Farm in the 60’s. I played it over and over and over way back when.
Those dark lines separate the differt songs.
That would be followed by Baroque type classical (I used to belong to a record club), followed by early John Denver and the crooning love of my life, Perra-looche, aka Perry Como. So now you know why I am what I am. 🙂
In celebration of today, what is YOUR favorite vinyl? Do you even have a vinyl? You know, record players are coming back.
Back to stamping tomorrow.
