Do You Still Play Records At Home?
A big invention was introduced today in 1877
It was on this day in History ( 11/21 ) 1877 that Thomas Alva Edison announced the invention of his “phonograph” . While other inventors had produced devices that could record sounds, Edison’s phonograph was the first to be able to reproduce the recorded sound.
I remember growing up and my first “albums” I bought were from the Columbia Record Club! You got a few “free” albums for signing up and then you had to but a few new albums over a certain length of time. My very first record to arrive ( via the mail ) was Kiss “Rock and Roll Over” circa 1976 …. and of course as soon as I opened it, it was on my turntable aka record player aka phonograph ….. Do you remember your first album ?
My first job in radio , weekend overnights in College in West Virginia, we played records! In fact the first album I ever aired during a show was John Denver , “Rocky Mountain High”
Fast – Foward to today, do you have a phonograph still at home ? Do you still play records ? Let us know if you have vinyl at home …..
