Question Of The Day: Virgin Vinyl

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"

Tonight at 7 on WFUV hear the up-and-coming Lake Street Dive perform live from Rockwood Music Hall. Their new album Bad Self Portraits comes out today and it's the FUV #NewDig. The band took their name from Lake Street, a storied strip in Minneapolis. That got us to thinking of songs that mention streets, avenues, roads, highways. Can we put together an atlas of those in the comments below? We'll plan out a route after 9am.

Happy Presidents Day! What did you get me? No, seriously, what did you get me? 'Cause we could sure use some "dead presidents" here at WFUV.
