Happy Birthday Phonograph

August 12 1877 Thomas Edison invents the phonograph. Still going….145 years.


Got to give credit to Emile Berliner for inventing the flat disc back in 1889. That allowed for greatly increased production compared to Edison’s cylinders!

Not really today is the anniversary of the gramophone not the flat disc.

Berliner also in vented the microphone. 

Chicken or the egg, no.

The Disc's were much more fun for comedians than the cylinders back then. Smash! LOL

Well the album jackets and storage worked out a lot better than the cylinder.

And we get 2 sides to play...bonus!
