If you believe that playing old vintage 78 records is merely tossing it on a turntable that has a "78" speed setting and dropping the ole' needle, you're in for an awakening !

Ever wonder how the most adored corporate trademark and logo ever came to be ?
Nipper (his actual name) - the RCA Dog and "His Master's Voice" was not a fictitious characterization dreamt up by a professional ad agency. No high power ad agency could ever have been that wildly successful ! On the contrary, "Nipper" was very real. This is the true story of how it all came to be.....

Format history and pictures of early recording technology (or total lack of it, depending upon how you view it !)
Audio Cartridge and Cassette
Before CD's and the standard audio cassettes of today, there were the audio cartridge and "gi-normous" cassette formats.
Reel to Reel was a great format, but it did not lend itself to life "on the road" in small portable transistorized devices to come. What was needed was a housing that made threading a machine a thing of the past...... Alas the Cartridge and Cassette.... idiot proof - easy interchangeability - media protection - and no spilled tape !
The early cartridge and cassette formats were huge by today's standards and were not much more than "reel to reel" mounted in a large housing. But they worked ! ....... (for the most part anyways...)
