Your friend, Sam Meier, appears to be one very interesting and insightful
guy in part one of Rick Karr's "TechnoPop" series on NPR. I like Karr's
evolving analogy of hardware/software (first: musician/sheet music, then
gramophone/records, and now the literal analogy).

Fascinating how Gennett would record anyone who paid for studio time, from
Louis Armstrong's first solo to recruitment records for the Indiana KKK.

A good history lesson for those of us too young to have lived it.

Thanks for sharing this link. Love and hugs,
