Are you back into vinyl? Did you ever abandon the format? Or are you just dipping your toe into the whole thing? Whatever kind of vinyl person you are, you’ll be fascinated by where this format came from–and why it won’t die.
Part 1 of “The History of Vinyl” will start at the very beginning, which was over a hundred years ago. We’ll only make it up to the end of the 1940s with this episode–yes, there’s that much of a tale to tell–but we need to do this to set the stage for part 2 where we bring everything up to the present.
