cool idea for the show tonight! I went to someone's house to play music a few weeks ago and they had a Victrola in great condition. Didn't get to spin any 78's though.
Electrical recordings ... yuck!

I'm just imagining the show a century from now as someone compares direct-to-digital recordings with A-D converted ones and with analog recordings on analog reproduction equipment. But that last bit may be frustrated by the equipment the audience listens on.
