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"
