If Thomas Edison didn't invent the phongraph...well, we wouldn't be having this conversation, would we?

Edison patented his miraculous talking box on this day in 1878.  From his original cylinders, to shellac and vinyl records...there's 136 years of recorded sound to get you in the groove.

Name your virgin vinyl--what was the 1st record you bought...and songs that mention the medium that IS the message...

Here's what we played:

Fred Astaire "They All Laughed"

Steely Dan "Pretzel Logic"

Corinne Bailey Rae "Put Your Records On"

Todd Snider "Vinyl Records"

Question of the Day: What's Your Bliss?

by Morning Show
A A

Today we celebrate the birthday anniversary of famous mythologist and writer Joseph Campbell. Perhaps most famous for his phrase "follow your bliss," Campbell was a proponent of finding and following one's passions in life. "If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living." So, this morning we want to know: what's your bliss? Can you say it in a song? Leave us a track in the comments below!

Here's what we played!

1. "Warmth of the Sun" - The Beach Boys

2. "Talkin Baseball" - Terry Cashman

3. "Vinyl Records" - Todd Snider

4. "Our House" - Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

Thanks for playing!

Question of the Day: Protest Songs?

by Morning Show
A A
What protest song moved you the most?

Two historic protest events, one from the heart of the 1960s Civil Rights Era, and another from the Vietnam years, happened on this day.
 
Martin Luther King led the March on Montgomery on March 25 1965, fighting for voting rights for African Americans in the troubled deep south.
 
John Lennon and Yoko Ono used the media circus that surrounded their March 1969 honeymoon to their advantage, conducting anti-war protest with humor in their "Bed-In For Peace" in Amsterdam.
 
In each event, peaceful protest put the message across.
 

Protest songs quickly moved from coffee houses to campuses to the American Hit Parade.  The tradition continues today.   WFUV invites you to name your favorite.

Here's today's playlist:

1. "People Have the Power" - Patti Smith

2. "I Ain't Marching Anymore" - Phil Ochs

3 "One Guitar" - Wilie Nile

4. "Eve of Destruction" - Barry McGuire
