During the 1940s to 1950s anyone with the proper recording technology to cut a record at home could create an aural snapshot in time. Individuals could create audio letters, songs, and stories to share with friends and family by simply sending them the master recorded acetate vinyl disc. Today via computers almost anyone can record at home, but years ago it was not that simple. Here is a recording for Lois by George, Ann, and Ray. Found in a junk antique shop for a dollar in Reno Nevada in 2006.
