78rpm Exploration

Monday, January 3 7:00pm — 10:00pm

Monday January 3 at 7PM-10PM
Hosted by Sluggo
Join sluggo for an audio exhumation, as he explores a recent find - a 1940s time capsule of home-recorded 78s. Without prior access to a 78 player our first listen will be together on air. Who were Sam and Jeanette? we'll attempt a listen at their take on "Show me the way to go home" on National Recording Disc. We'll also give a spin to a Wilcox-Gay Home Record made of "slow burning material" of Sam and Jeanette's "You are my Sunshine" and "Shmo-Shandel." There's a fine looking golden yellow Crystal Tone with no markings. What hidden message lies beneath, or is it just a an unused blank? There's a Pepsi Cola "The voice of your man in service" recorded on 10/26/47, which due to a sort of crazing may not give us anything coherent but if we're lucky might yield some sort of Christian Marclay type audio experiment. There's a Silvertone Record Disc of Joe and Paul dated Oct 28, 1947. We will probably never know what wisdom Shelly, Age 3 has to impart on her Va-Co Flexible Disk debut (presumably), as the flexi is crazed beyond repair, again we have to hope for some sort of live noise performance out of this one perhaps. Finally a Wilcox-Gay Recordio Disc marked Rose and Lorayne(?) from March 10,1943. What lies beneath???? Will sluggo be left holding the needle a'la Geraldo with nothing to show but a heavy coating of Shellac on the face mask? Tune in This Monday 7-10 pm to find out what sounds will be found!
