“the old problem of radio versus records is scarcely with us,” 1934

Remember the Great Faculty Club Victrola Poll of October 1930?

I fear this issue might not have been finally laid to rest until 1934.

Which is only too easy to imagine.

Bonus: These two look like they’re about to drop this year’s hottest album.

    Hi-Fi disputes are as old as…well…recordings. At the time (1930) radio was a hot, new item and sounded better than “records”. Edison phonographs had been around since before the turn of the century and radio eliminated the need for the scratchy, noisy platter. BTW…we didn’t get “bad fidelity” until we had “high fidelity”.
