NATIONAL VINYL RECORD DAY

The Beatles, Elvis Presley, The Monkees. Does the mention of these musicians make you picture a large black record? A vinyl record? The vintage "vinyl" is almost as much of a classic as the bands themselves.

These vinyl records are commemorated annually on August 11. Vinyl records are also known as : Gramophone record, phonograph record or a record. It is an analog sound storage medium consisting of a flat disc which as an inscribed, modulated spiral groove.

Vinyl records were often described by their diameter in inches such as: 12-inch, 10-inch, 7-inch, etc.) the rotational speed at which they are played ( "33 1/3 rpm", "78″, "45″, etc.), their time capacity ("long playing" or "single"), their reproductive accuracy, or "fidelity" ("high fidelity", orthophonic", full-range", etc.), and the number of channels of audio provided ("mono", "stereo", "quadraphonic", etc. )

Vinyl records left the mainstream in 1991 however they continued to be manufactured and sold in the 21st century.

Today is a good day to reminisce about the "Good Ol Days".

Happy National Vinyl Record Day.
