Antique Audio, Episode 1: "Black and Blue"

Yesterday, my stylus broke and I was unable to play vinyl.

However, I did have an extra 78 rpm stylus and a bunch of 78 rmp records. These records are not vinyl, but for the first half of the 20th century, music was delivered on shellac.

This is a recording of "(What did I Have to Do to Be So) Black and Blue" by Louis Armstrong, from August, 1929.

Check back frequently for new episodes of Antique Audio, spinning some of the oldest and historic recordings.
